Braves 2011 Varsity Football Schedule

One thing that should please Heard County Braves fans economically this 2011 season is the absence of any long regular season road trips from Franklin. The Braves will make the short journey to Roanoke on August 26th to face the Handley Tigers in the season opener and then will find themselves stationed at the friendly confines of Staples Stadium for the entire month of September.

After an early week two bye the Braves will return home to face arch rivals from Class A the Bowdon Red Devils who will be looking to exact revenge for the 28-14 loss they suffered at the hands of the Braves one year ago at Warren P. Sewell field. The remainder of the month of September will see visits from Coosa (7-AA) followed by the first two Region 5-AA foes in Jordan (9/23) and AA powerhouse Carver both out of the Columbus area.

As the calendar turns to October the Braves will spend a lot of time on the bus as they travel for  four consecutive weeks beginning at Temple on October 7th.

Sandwiched between treks to Memorial Stadium in Columbus to face Kendrick and Spencer the Braves will face their most anticipated Region 5-AA rival the Callaway Cavaliers at Callaway Stadium in Lagrange on October 21st.Expect the Cavs to be looking for huge revenge after the Braves big 23-19 upset last fall.

The young Braves (only 5 seniors) will return home to close the season when they host the Manchester Blue Devils November 4th.

Braves fans should try to enjoy the friendly travel schedule this season as the proposed 2012 GHSA realignment could see the Braves once again making 2+hour trips to former foes such as Macon, Taylor, and Crawford Counties.

If you are interested in purchasing reserved season tickets this year they are available for $50 each and reserved parking spaces are also available for $25 each. For more information contact Mandy Stephens at (706)594-2916 0r  (678)416-2641.
