  • Harris breaks school record in blowout win over Western

    Sophomore Cameron Harris reeled in four catches in Collins High School’s 43-6 drubbing of Western on Friday in the first round of the KHSAA Class 4A playoffs.

    Why is this significant?

    Because Harris plays defense for the Titans.

    The defensive back only needed one half of play to break Collins’ (7-4) school-record for interceptions in a game, and helped keep the ball away from the Warriors (4-7) offense for long stretches of the game.
