Franklin finished the 2015-16 season on a high note, making a postseason run to the Region semifinals after a last place finish in District 11-AAA in the regular season. The Rebels have a new coach in Darrin Joines who brings his 1-3-1 zone with him after a successful run at Beech. The Rebels have several players with experience from last year and their experience during the season and postseason last year will be a positive factor this year as they look to climb back near the top of the district.
Coach Joines says it will be a great season if:
“We play together as a team and continue to improve throughout the year.”
Coach Joines says it will be a tough season if:
