Former FHS standout is Student Athlete of the Year.
Lindsay Simpson has turned heads all season during her freshman season of basketball at Western Carolina University. The former Franklin High School player holds the point record at her alma mater with 2,693 points, a legacy that could be hard to match for future athletes.
Since leaving FHS to play for WCU, Simpson has done nothing but impress spectators with her ability to stand out among the other players on the court with her effective presence. She ended the season as the school's top scorer and consistent starting guard. She averaged 7.2 points per game this season and scored in double digits during nine outings, one of which she put up 25 points for her most impressive showing.
