HOMESTEAD, Fla. – Kevin Harvick walked into his post-race press conference munching a slice of pepperoni pizza. He ended it with 2-year-old son Keelan on his lap and walked out of the room with a bottle of his sponsor’s beer in his hand.

All pretty normal stuff.

But the 2014 season, to which Harvick applied his exclamation mark last Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, was anything but. It was special and quite remarkable for the team, its owners and its driver.

Moreover it was about the combined family that Stewart-Haas Racing had become in the last year, bringing in new faces like Harvick and Kurt Busch and talented behind-the-scenes people like eager-to-achieve crew chief Rodney Childers.

The FHS varsity football team destroyed a stigma that has been hanging around for the last two years when they took on the Wilkes Central Eagles at the Panther Pit last Friday night.

The Panthers haven't made it out of the first round since 2011, but against the Eagles they improved their unbeaten streak to 12-0 on the season.

In the opening quarter, it looked as though the 4-8 visitors might be able to hang with Franklin when they were able to stop them a couple of times at the start of the game. That didn't last.

Last week, Franklin High School senior Maddy Cousineau signed to play college softball at Mississippi State University. She was joined by her parents, Sonja and Troy Cousineau, her coach Penny Moffitt and many friends.

Mississippi State is a Southeastern Conference School and as Athletic Director Jay Brooks pointed out, has the means to recruit all over the nation. The fact that they chose Cousineau is quite the honor for her, her family and friends, and FHS.

Cousineau, who plays volleyball as well, was offered the chance to play at Mississippi State based on her abilities behind the plate as catcher for the varsity softball team. Last season, as a junior, she had a batting average of .302 with 18 RBIs, five homeruns. She was also chosen as an All-WNCAC player.

Last Tuesday night, Franklin High School's varsity soccer team saw it's season come to a conclusion when they travelled east to Newton, NC to take on the Newton-Conover Red Devils in the semi-finals of the state playoffs. They ended up losing the game 1-0 when the Devils scored a goal with 13 seconds left in the contest.

Newton-Conover would go on to win the 2A State Championship, but the Franklin soccer team should conclude its season with the solace of knowing that they could hang with any team in the state.
