Football Class AAA State
Championship Game

On November 21, the Highlander football team traveled to The Citadel in Charleston for the SCISA Class AAA state championship game against Wilson Hall. Though the Barons pulled out a 34-32 win, the hundreds of Heathwood Hall supporters who made the trip were treated to one of the most exciting games in school history. Quarterback Brandon Gantt, a sophomore, threw for more than 300 yards, including 3 touchdown strikes to junior J.D. Whalen and a Hail Mary pass to junior Andy Shields that pulled the Highlanders within 2 points as time expired in the game. A two-point conversion attempt to tie the game literally came up an inch short, but no one in attendance left feeling short-changed after a remarkable effort by Heathwood's players and coaches. We hope you enjoy these pictures from the Big Game!
