Braves to Face Red Jackets in Homecoming Region Opener

The big week of homecoming festivities will conclude this Friday night when the Braves play host to their first Region 5-AA opponent, the Jordan Red Jackets from Columbus.

The Braves have won three straight match-ups with the Jackets but last season’s Thursday night contest was a very close affair that ended with the Braves on top 14-6.

Jordan comes into the game off of last week’s 70-0 beat down at the hands of  AAA power the Cairo Syrupmakers. Coach Barron and the Braves will look to continue their winning ways after the nice 14-7 win over Coosa last week.

A large crowd is expected at the game this week as a lot of alumni will be in town for homecoming. In fact, if you look to the left side of the press box towards the field house this week, you will see a specially marked off section for the Class of 1986 who will be celebrating their 25th reunion this weekend.

The Homecoming parade will take place today at 4:30 p.m. on the square in Franklin and should be lots of fun as always. Also the public is invited to the Homecoming Pep Rally tomorrow afternoon at the school where the Homecoming King will be announced.
