Wonder if those idiot radio announcers have accused Monroe of cheating yet?

This game has nothing to do with the refs. If anything, Franklin had several calls go against them this week. Great win for Franklin!

Franklin wins a classic!......just a great game & what high school football should be about this time of the year. Both teams left it all on the field. Congrats to the Panthers as they set a school record for wins with 14! A special shout on to #11 for a gritty performence on a fractured ankle.

You know what's next. "Wait till next week, blah, blah,blah.

Enjoy the win. I saw an unusual thing tonight at East Lincoln that I have not seen in the three games I watched. They had to punt once. No joke.

First, check out these highlights - YouTubeClassics

Then I want you to turn the burner down on your meth lab, walk over to the door of your trailer and open it.

Step out on the porch and breathe in that sweet mill town air.

That's right....take it all in; your life really, really sucks.

RadioCheck, nice work.

Hitemhard93, why in god's name would someone from Pisgah pull so hard against Franklin in the state playoffs? That's absolutely ridiculous that you can't find some joy in a fellow conference member having success on the field against teams from down east.

Congrats to Franklin. Twice in the last 3 years Monroe's speed is supposed to run a mountain team off the field and both times they leave the mountains with an L.
