TR Schools named to NFL's Super Bowl Honor Roll

Congratulations to Highlands and Grant Union high schools.

They are officially part of the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll community. To commemorate the 50th season of the Super Bowl, the NFL sent a commemorative Golden Football to each school of every player or head coach who was on an active roster in a Super Bowl.

Highlands had two players, Scott Galbraith (Dallas Cowboys, Super Bowl XXVIII) and Chris Oldham (Pittsburgh Steelers/Super Bowl XXX).

"We are really excited," says Darryl Hawthrone, Highlands' principal. "The Golden Football is great recognition for our school, highlighting the major accomplishments of outstanding student athletes. Chris and Scott are excellent representatives for the Highlands' Scots family. We couldn't be more proud."

Grant Union High School's Golden Football is in honor of Donte Stallworth (New England Patriots, Super Bowl XLII).
