Franklin County has been hard at work in the offseason with some big goals in mind.

"The last two or three years around here we haven't been able to finish," says Coach Eddie James. "We've had close games but with never really turn that corner. Our guys are now seniors and juniors so we're trying to teach them and instill confidence in them with how we play and how we carry ourselves."

And it's working- this off-season the Flyers saw significant growth in their players.

Wide receiver Cameron Phelps explains, "Our whole team, just the whole program is more bonded. We're just coming out here and working harder every day it's just putting every buddy together."

Quinten Ewing agrees, "Everything everything they put us through we have more of a bond." He says the growth allows each player to take responsibility for their actions. "It helps us as a team grow so not everyone is doing each other's job. Everybody's doing a specific job."

The Flyers are excited to show fans their new offense lead by coach Thacker – who previously coached at LCA.

"Our offense of mono is mash the gas we're gonna play as fast as we can." Coach James continues explaining, "We're going to get as many bodies as we can get in and score as many points as we can."

The Flyers shouldn't have too much of a problem with that game plan as they return Tre Simmons and Bowen Dakota. The pair accounted for 8 touchdowns and almost 1000 yards last season.
