Making a statement

The Franklin Lions are busy breaking in their new offense for the 2017 season and in the process they have had some ups and downs. That is something you expect when you shift around or install some new personnel into the playing mix.

A new quarterback, some new receivers, and several new members in the offensive line have made for some adjustment problems in the Lions offense.

Two weeks ago they were limited to a season low 174 yards for the game. Usually the Lions have multiple backs that have gained more yards than that in one game.
