The Alton Redbirds find themselves in a familiar position following a 21-0 loss to Highland Friday in the season opener at Public School Stadium.

Alton lost to the Bulldogs in last year’s opener as well, but went on the claim a 7A playoff berth. Alton coach Eric Dickerson said that while Highland deserved credit, his team’s mistakes are correctable.

“They’re a good team,” Dickerson said. “We just had too many turnovers, dropped passes. It was uncharacteristic of how we have been playing, but they are all things that can be fixed - and they will be fixed.”

Alton got 53 yards rushing from Tim Johnson and quarterback Andrew Jones was 15 of 28 for 136 yards.

We corrected things somewhat during the game,” Dickerson said. “We played pretty well defensively in the second half, but couldn’t get in rhythm on offense.”
