Watch out restaurants, Franklin offensive lineman could be coming your way! With several mammoth offensive lineman, Franklin High School football ranks #3 in our Fine 9, the top high school football teams in the borderland. Franklin returns 11 starters from last year's 10-2,8-0 season, along with a roster of 36 seniors, the Cougars are loaded.
"The strength is definitely our senior class, we have a lot of skill guys back, and a couple of lineman back, and our senior class is as solid as we have ever had, so we're proud of those guys and the way they work, so I think they will give us great leadership throughout the season," said Head Coach Daren Walker. Senior Linebacker Jackson Glenewinkle said, "You know, we are all on the same page, and that really helps with us getting wins, and that's the ultimate goal." Senior Offensive Lineman Derek Elmendorff added, "the talent on this team is remarkable, and we should be able to make something special if we can come together. We are very excited to get this season rolling and just excited about this upcoming season."
This Friday, Franklin opens the season in Midland versus San Angelo Central.
