LIL PATRIOTS 8 CROWVILLE 6
In what proved to be a defensive struggle, the Lil Patriots held on to win a tight game to gain the right to play in the championship game. Mathew Mays threw a touchdown pass to C.J. Heckard and Colby Hillman punched in the two-point conversion to lead the scoring for the Patriots. Crowville fought back with a touchdown run by Maddy Cockerham, but the Patriot's defense stiffened on the extra point try to turn away the Bulldogs chances. With one of the day's most entertaining game it is obvious that this league will be one of the closest matched for years to come.
BASKIN 26 FCCS (blue) 14
The Baskin Rams have been a duel threat all season and that proved to still be the case Saturday as TuTu Pleasant and J.T. Smith each had two rushing touchdowns and J.T. added two extra-point runs to talley the winning score. Other teams had a star rusher but no other team had two as Baskin did and that proved to be the difference. The coaches agreed that was in the game plan to keep the opponents guessing. Derrick Austin set up two of the scores on long rushes. The lost feature of the Rams team is the defense. The coaches also thought that they did a good job pulling flags this year and that helped them to win the championship. The defense was led by big efforts by Shon Chrisman, Chaston Williams, and Jaden Smith. Others making flag pulls were J.T. Smith, TuTu Pleasant, Dylan Curtis, and Derrick Austin.
The Warriors fought hard all season to make it to the championship game. Trey Middleton started the scoring for the warriors on a short touchdown run and followed that by throwing a two-point conversion pass to Kemper Cloessner. Kemper later added another touchdown run. Kemper led the warriors all year on offense. One of the main reasons that the warriors were in the championship game, along with their offense, was their ability to pull flags in big situations. The warrior defense was led by a big game by Cabe Cloessner and Trey Middleton. Others making a defensive impact were Kemper and Baylor Cobb. The game went back and forth at the end with each team forcing turn over on downs before Baskin finally prevailed. Both teams have a lot to be proud of and if this should show what the league has to offer for the future, the future really looks bright.

The Warriors team dominated most of the year and continued that into the championship game. The warriors were led on offense by Jacob Rhodes which added two touchdowns. Joshua Poland and Kendarius Smith also added a touchdown run of their own. Ty Duff added a two-point run to cap the score for the victors. The Warrior defense was stifling on the day with big games by Jacob Rhodes. Rhodes recorded three sacks and a fumble recovery.

The Bulldogs really played well at the end of their season to gain the extra opportunity to play in the championship game. The offense was led by good efforts by Cater Banks and Allen Newman. The defensive leader was Haydan Searcy with four tackles, while Allen Newman, Anthony Brooks, Micheal Boley Jr., and Jacob Harod each had three.

Tackle Two Championship Game
LIL PATRIOTS 14
The Warriors came in to the championship game having dominated the season and continued that to the end to earn the first ever Franklin Youth Football Tackle Two Championship. The Lil Patriots put a strong fight early before the victors pulled away at the end. This was a hard hitting game with a lot of explosive offensive plays that proved to make an exciting finale to a fantastic inaugural season.
The Warriors were led on offense by K.J. Johnson's four touchdown runs. Tucker Armstrong, Kendarious Brooks, and Johnson each had two-point conversion runs. As impressive as the warrior offense was, the defense was equally dominating. Kendarious Brooks and Tucker Armstrong each had interceptions, while Cross Hogan, Justin Collins, Colten Williams, Johnson, and Armstrong each had three tackles to lead the way. Eight other players recorded at least one tackle to prove that this was a true team effort.
The Lil Patriots put on a show of their own, making this game close for three quarters of play. Kenyon Majors and Aaron Brown each added a touchdown for the Patriots. Colby Hillman punched in a two-point conversion run on an excitingly tough run. Mathew Mays sparked the Patriot defense with an interception, while Colby Hillman's crushing tackles set the tone that they were there to play and ready to put up a fight. Nick Norwood, Kenyon Majors, Hillman, and Mays each had three tackles. Six other patriots recorded a tackle for a big team effort.
As entertaining as it was to watch these future football stars battle for the championship, nothing was as impressive as the effort by these young men. The blood, sweat, and yes actual tears were a testament to all of the hard work the players, coaches, and workers put into the first year of Franklin Youth Football.

"We could not have had as much success this year without all of your hard work and dedication. I look forward to next year and many years to come. I could not be more proud of OUR league. Once again thank you all!" Coach Curt Curtis.
