The Franklin County Lions football team will get their first taste of competition against another opponent Friday night.

The Lions will travel to Commerce to take on the Tigers in a preseason scrimmage at 7:30 p.m.

The Lions and Tigers, long-time football rivals, have played a preseason scrimmage against each other several times in the last few seasons.

Seniors Kalyn Jinks (sliding in safely during last year's state semifinals), Kaleigh Fowler and Jaden Cheek will be counted on for leadership as the Franklin County Lady Lions set out to defend their Class AAA state championship.

In one way, nothing has changed as the Franklin County Lady Lions head into the 2019 season.

But then again, everything has changed.

For the first time in the program’s history, the Lady Lions will go into a season as the defending state champions.

Franklin won the school’s first fast-pitch state champioship last season in Class AAA.

Micah Roebuck takes an acrobatic shot earlier this season against Jackson County.

The Franklin County Lion and Lady Lion basketball teams will host rival Hart County tonight at FCHS in key Region 8AAA games for both teams.

The Lions, winners of four straight – including a buzzer-beating win Saturday at Stephens County – are currently 2-3 (9-7 overall) and in fifth place in the region standings.
