Lions roaring LOUDLY!

For the Franklin Lions, it has come down to this one game in week ten of the season. The Lions are unbeaten in district and have only one blemish on their record, a loss to 4A Caldwell. Since then the Lions have been roaring loudly taking care of Cameron, Troy, McGregor, and Jarrell.

Now they come face to face with the only team that has also remained unbeaten after a tough district stretch, the Rockdale Tigers. These two played an epic game last season with the Tigers prevailing, 27-21. The Tigers have successfully replaced some key parts from last season including running back Davion Ford and quarterback Dabid Franklin.

However, with speedster Jaqualyn Crawford back the Tigers still put up some impressive numbers including 50 plus against Cameron. They defeated McGregor this past week after trailing early and now all eyes are on the Lions. Franklin is hoping their ball control offense can play keep away from the Tigers offense and allow them to control the tempo.
