The Franklin Grizzly Cubs have had a rough season. Taking at 1-8 record into last night's 4-A sectional opener, the team responded with an enthusiastic 35-7 win over Greenfield Central.
The defense led the way, but the offense was also potent. Senior QB Brad Hook passed for 155 yards and a touchdown and ran for 123 yards and three touchdowns.
This sets up a rematch with perennial Mid-State Conference rival Whiteland next Friday. Whiteland trounced Manual in their opener, 37-0. The Grizzly Cubs lost to the Warriors in the 2006 sectional final in a thrilling overtime game, and in the 2007 regular season, Whiteland got past Franklin 28-14.
Congrats to Coach Mike McClure and the team. Go Grizzly Cubs!
