I am making a stat sheet for a Lan party I am having. I would like to highlight the highest and lowest values in each column. For example the three people with the most kills with have their kill count highlighted. I have an example but do not know how to replicate it.

There is needed to use conditional formatting (Menu/Format/Conditional Formatting), a better explanation about the new conditional formatting in 4.x branch is founded in documentation:
2 Entering, Editing, and Formatting Data. - Using conditional formatting (page 29)

Also a video:

Added a sample file with a conditional format to color 3 largest and 3 smallest values.


I hope more understandable now.:)

Indeed, this answer absolutely doesn't answer the question, or if it does it's well hidden.

Agreed. If one can highlight the top value in a column, row or area, one woul imagine this would be an easy fix.
