Money can’t buy you everything.  We all know it can’t buy happiness and it most certainly cannot buy respect.

I am certain many of you have heard the rumors around town that the Highland Park Scotts are going to wear white trash bags to Friday night’s Class 4A, Division 1 Region II playoff game between Highland Park and Wylie High School. The Scotts are dubbing the game, “Trash vs. Cash”. Classy, I know.

I know of no other team that has worked as hard and solidified as a unit as the Pirates have. These guys are stellar.  Despite last week’s attempt at intimidation by the South Oak Cliff Bearcats and their growling and bravado chest beating, our guys ignored the hype and played a clean game.  Oh, and they won.

The Pirates have proven themselves steady and focused this season and they know how to move that ball and block that line.  So if the boys wearing skirts think they can take us, more power to them because our guys are the ones who have earned the respect by keeping it classy.

Win or lose on Friday night, our guys will walk away the winners.

FYI, the venue has changed.  According to the Wylie News it will not be held at Allen Eagle Stadium on Friday.  Kickoff is 7:30pm.
