Highlands Holds On, Downs Covington Catholic, 37-34
Bryan Burke - The River City News
In a much better contest than the last time these two teams met in Fort Thomas, Covington Catholic fell just short in a spirited comeback attempt at Highlands in the quarterfinals of the KHSAA Class 4A State Playoffs, 37-34.

The Bluebirds were in complete command of the game up 30-13, midway through the third quarter when Highlands quarterback Beau Hoge completed perhaps one of the greatest runs in anyone's recent memory.

On his own 19-yard line, Hoge took the shotgun snap and faked the handoff on the read option, confusing a good number of the Colonels in the process. He found a chunk of open space in the flat right away and got to the sideline quickly. He made it all the way to midfield, slammed on the breaks to let a defender pass him up, took two more steps, slammed on the breaks again to let another guy whiff, cut it back to the middle of the field, broke a tackle and ran it in the remaining way for an 81-yard classic. Hoge had a terrific game before the long touchdown run, keeping plays alive for positive gains with his legs, and keeping his eyes downfield for open receivers when his protection broke down. He was the best player on the field already, but he cemented it with that run.

“I was able to pull it and really when I was able to get upfield, a couple of their guys were just flying up from behind me so I took a couple of false steps and I was able to get it back across field and instincts took over from there,” Hoge said of his touchdown run.
