    I DON'T HAVE ANY KIDS ON THE TEAM ---BUT IT'S A DAM SHAME THAT WE HAVE A NUMBER OF JUNIOR AND SENIOR PLAYERS THAT MAKES EVERY PRACTICE WORKS HARD DRESSES FOR THE FRIDAY EVENT AND HAS NEVER PLAYED IN ANY GAME.--THIS NEW HEAD COACH WANT'S TO WIN SO BAD THAT HE CONTINUED TO RUN ( #22 ) KNOWING HE HOBBLED OFF HURT SEVERAL TIMES.--THIS KID DIDN'T PLAY ANY THE PREVIOUS GAME BECAUSE OF THE SAME ANKLE INJURY---AND NO MATTER HOW GOOD HE IS THATS THE WAY YOU SET HIM UP FOR LONG TERM --PLAY HIM TILL HE DROPS--IF I HAD THE POWER I WOULD FIRE THAT OFFENSIVE COACH.

    No. I'm just HS football fan.
    But I know bad coaching when I see it. I never thought I would miss Coach Mullens but for a brief few minutes Friday night I sure did. Then I came to my senses.
    However at least he would have tried to throw the ball even if he knew it won't change the outcome of the game.
    Coaches can't quit trying for the win. The players see it when the coaches quit and then they quit.
    When times get tough, the correct response is not to quit.
    HH coaching staff did not deliver that message to the kids Friday night and that is a greater travesty than actually losing the game (a game that was decided not on player talent, but in fact was lost due to a lack of coaching).

    The Knights offensive game plan continues to be a pathwork of inconsistencies that hold this team back.
    They always run on first down. They always take forever to get a play called from the sideline. Kids seem to not know to get out of bounds to stop the clock when trying to score at the end of the half.
    Only the Knight Coaches failed to notice that Temple team defense pursit speed was too much for the Knights to effective run toss-sweeps.
    However the short 5 to 10 yard pass play to the sideline was open ALL NIGHT. It's a shame the Knights only threw that route 3 times (all for completions).

    This loss is absolutely on the Coaching Staff.
    This staff is horrible.
    There is no clock management.
    Everyone at Leo Buckley knew Temple was going to kick the onside kick after going up 14-7. Less than 4 minutes left in the half, with Temple getting the ball to start the 3rd quarter and getting to kick off from the Knights 45. It was closest thing to a sure bet ther ever was.
    How in the world did the coaching staff NOT have the Knight s ready for that play?
    Inexcusable.

    Harker Heights Knights : A terrible in justice has plagued the team all season it's the Offensive Coordinators! Every other team that they played has a Hurry Up Offense!!!! Is that to difficult to handle? Wasted too much time to call a play! Check the film and clock! Need to step it up or step down! Hope the latter!

    Harker Heights Knights: I don't know if the guy up siting up stairs or the guy on the field calling the Offensive plays are doing a terrible in justice to the whole knights team!!!!!! Every other opponent that they have faced has an Hurry Up Offense!!!!!! Valuable time is wasted every game!!!!!! What is that too much to ask for?????? Offensive Coordinators need to step it up or step down! Preferred the later!!!!
    Make the right choice for the sake of the team!!!!!! Go KNIGHTS!
