The Harlem Ambassadors visited Franklin on Tuesday night to take on the Franklin Dribblers at the FHS Panther Pit in front of lively audience.
As part of the show, young attendees along with their friends and family were invited to take part in various mini-games that were held throughout the night as well as some hilarious dance sequences.
The Harlem Ambassadors use their headturning basketball skills to spread laughs and a positive message to kids, “Stay in School – Stay Off Drugs.”
Partnered with The Franklin Chamber of Commerce and the Franklin High School Booster Club, the Ambassadors made Franklin one of their more than 200 shows they put on each year.
The Franklin Dribblers lost the game by a wide margin, but were still able to play some solid basketball and join in on the fun. The team was made up by some familiar faces such as Sheriff Robert Holland, attorney John Henning Jr., Coach Josh Brooks, Coach Justin Moffitt, and many others from Franklin. The team was coached by former FHS principal Gary Shields. Taylor Brooks and Michael Contino were the referees that were tasked with containing the teams.
