(Franklin, GA) — The 2017-2018 school year will officially be underway in Heard County when students return to class this Friday, but a bevy of activities took place over the weekend in preparation for that big day.

At Heard High, events kicked off Friday evening with the annual ‘Midnight Madness’ event which gave Brave football fans an early glimpse at the new roster for the upcoming football season.

This year’s event featured an exciting ‘Legends’ game with players from past years coming out of retirement to battle it out once again on the gridiron.

Retired AD and current Franklin Mayor Joel Rogers coached one squad with Sheriff Ross Henry leading the other. Rogers’ squad scored the exciting 26-20 victory.

A brief downpour forced some activities into the gymnasium before players and fans returned to Staples Stadium for the traditional Midnight Madness practice session.

Clay Harden and his dad Dan Harden won an exciting corn hole tournament in the gym, rallying to defeat Brave coaches Tim Barron and Randall Curbow in the finals.
