The Highland Park Scots celebrated homecoming by clinching a playoff spot with a 49-24 victory over Carrollton Creekview on Friday night at Highlander Stadium. It was also the team’s final home game of the regular season.
Quarterback Brooks Burgin threw for 253 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 53 yards and another score. Running back Cole Feigl also had a big night with 12 carries for 92 yards and a touchdown, along with six catches for 77 yards.
“It was a fantastic time,” Feigl said. “I couldn’t have done it without my O-line. They did a fantastic job, and the receivers’ blocking was great. It was not just a run game. Burgin is just a play-maker overall. We couldn’t do it without him, the line, and the receivers.”
The Scots (7-1, 5-0) are still on track to win what would be their fifth straight District 10-4A championship. Highland Park is at Carrollton Newman Smith next Friday night. The Scots will then play at Terrell on Nov. 8 to close out the regular season.
