HHSfbHeinrichsFrontPage546.jpg Hillsboro High School head football coach Max Heinrichs (foreground) shares a laugh with assistant coach Len Coryea as they celebrate Friday night?s dramatic and somewhat rare victory over Smoky Valley, 34-28 in overtime. Though Heinrichs is in his first year as coach at HHS, his record against the Vikings as the coach at Minneapolis High School was 1-8; Coryea, who just completed five years as the Trojans? head coach, was 1-4. The Trojans sealed the win when junior Caleb Hilliard intercepted a quarterback pitch on an end sweep as Smoky Valley was trying to score. For details of the game see Page 14.
