The fall sports season at Franklin High School is in full swing. In the gym, girls are playing volleyball, at the Macon Middle School soccer field the guys continue to dominate their competition and on Friday nights, the Panthers' varsity football team suits up to take on all-comers to the gridiron, but the sounds of smashing helmets isn't the only sound coming from the stadium.

The FHS band provides the musical soundtrack for the football team and very ably entertains the audience at half time shows, but not only do they provide backup, they also compete regularly in the fall and turn heads when they do it.

Last Friday night, the Franklin High School varsity football team travelled to Asheville to take on the T.C. Roberson Rams. The Panthers would be going into the contest without standout running back Marquel Manning who tore his MCL in the game against Murphy. It is predicted that he will miss two to seven weeks of play. 

Despite being down one rushing threat, the team had back up for such a situation. Filling in for Manning, Jeremiah Young rushed for 209 yards and two touchdowns. The Rams played Franklin tight and kept them on their toes throughout all four quarters. As time wound down in the fourth quarter, Franklin held on to a lead of 35-31.
