Grizzlies Get Pre-Season Recognition

The article below, from the Franklin College football site, shows that the last two years of hard work and success have earned some much-deserved recognition for Coach Mike Leonard's team.

We're only about a month away, and I for one can't wait!

FRANKLIN, Ind. (July 1) – Franklin College is ranked No. 25 in the USA Today Sports Weekly magazine pre-season Division III football poll for 2008.

The recognition marks the first time the Grizzlies program has been included in the national publication’s Division III pre-season ranking.

Franklin returns 16 starters from last year’s historic team that posted a 9-2 overall record, won its first Heartland Conference championship and earned its first berth in the NCAA Division III playoffs.
