The Fort Thomas Highlands Bluebirds will host the Louisville Trinity Shamrocks this Friday at Highlands' David Cecil Memorial Stadium. This contest marks the only preseason scrimmage for both teams. These two programs, arguably the most storied in Kentucky, have won a state-record 19 state football titles. Also, both teams are considered major championship contenders this season, Highlands in Class 5A and Trinity in Class 6A. This preseason game will be the first-ever scrimmage between Highlands and Trinity, and the two programs have only played each other twice in the regular season; Trinity defeated Highlands 20-7 in 1969 and Highlands beat Trinity 42-29 in 2000. The scrimmage is to be played under a regular-game format and is part of the Northern Kentucky Football Coaches Association's 2010 Tom Potter Classic.
The scimmage will be played at Highlands on Friday, August 13 at 7:30PM.
