However, the big media people are focused on the big schools. &nbsp;<br /> High school has also started and while the Breds have dropped the first two games, there is much improvement and spirits are still high on the Hilltop. &nbsp;<br /> Sports beat http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/sports-beat-315 <p> Breds&rsquo; home opener is Friday<br /> The Harrison County football Thorobreds will open the home season Friday night when they play host to 1-1 Montgomery County. &nbsp;<br /> Athletic Director Brad Allison commented on the excitement on the Hilltop for Friday&rsquo;s tussle. &ldquo;We are all excited about the home opener and hope that the fans will come out and show their support for the coaches and the players who have been working so hard.&rdquo;<br />
