“The coaches put me in a spot where I could make plays and I made plays,” Higle said.

“He’s a very coachable kid, and he likes to coach everybody else,” head coach Chad Phillips said. “He brings a passion for the game.”
The Starr’s Mill defense held Chapel Hill to 75 rushing yards and 147 passing yards, along with forcing one fumble. In the end, the defensive effort was not enough as Chapel Hill defeated Starr’s Mill 28-21.
