The Franklin County volleyball program has checked most of its “first-ever” accomplishments. The Lady Lions had their first games in 2018 during their first season, at the end of which they graduated their first senior class. On Monday, the team got its first win, a 3-0 win over Barnes Academy in Carnesville.
Things are a little more familiar for the Franklin County Marching Pride Band this football season. Director Christopher Sampson is in his second year at the head of the band, so his returning band students know what to expect from him.
The 2019 Franklin County Lions football season kicks off Friday at 7:30 p.m. in The Reservation in Toccoa. The Lions will face one of their most familiar foes and biggest rivals, the Stephens County Indians, a squad that is looking to build off of a playoff appearance last season.
