|Several Patriots on recruiting radar|
When a team has to replace a district co-MVP in the offseason, it generally isn't an easy process. Take that one step further and add the fact that same team is also having to replenish several other all-district positions from the year ago, and one could think the task may be too much to handle, thus making a disappointing follow-up campaign unavoidable.
Those are just a couple of the challenges Franklin Parish faces entering the 2012 season, but you won't find any negative anxiety around the field house on Booger McFarland Drive. In fact, this could be the most highly-anticipated season in Patriot history – just one year after finishing 7-5 and posting a 4A road playoff victory.
The reason for such jovial and optimistic spirits around the Franklin Parish program these days is simple: Although they lost some great players, the Patriots bring back an experienced squad that has more legitimate next-level talent then the school has possibly ever seen.
With a veteran-laced squad consisting of 19 seniors gracing the 2012 roster, the Patriots now appear poised to not only equal last season's productivity, but ride the current wave of momentum to whole other level.
While FP coaches know the product still has to produce on the field, they admit this year's team carries a special buzz with it into the season.
