Lions continue to roar; Troy Trojans up next

Lions ready attack the Troy Trojans

For the past two seasons the Franklin Lions and the Troy Trojans were in the same district so they played each other both seasons.

However, those are the only two times these two have met on the football field. Franklin won both games in 2016 42-14 and in 2017 41-10. Troy is a surprise team this season as they were picked to finish 3rd in district behind Cameron and Rockdale but the Trojans went 8-2 in the regular season and 6-1 in district with their only loss was a close 39-26 defeat to Cameron, in their district opener.

Since then they reeled off six consecutive wins including a 21-17 win over defending State Champion Rockdale. They were a young team a year ago but have grown up in 2018 into a top contender.
