Highlands' Cannon Retired

The Highlands cannon, affectionately known as "Olde Betsy," has been retired. The 800-pound cannon has been fired during Highlands home football games since 1968. This decision was made in large part because of an injury sustained to a member of the cannon crew on the day of the 2008 Kentucky Class 5A state championship game, which Highlands won.
