Highland Park, ranked No. 58 in the High School Football America 100 national rankings, was led by 4-star quarterback Chandler Morris, who earlier this month decommitted from Arkansas after his father Chad Morris was fired. Morris completed 16-of-24 passes for 281 yards and five touchdowns in three quarters of action.

The win sets-up the possibility of a big High School Football America 100 head-to-head matchup next week. The Scots get the winner Friday’s game between Lone Star, ranked No. 44 in the High School Football America 100, and College Station.
