Summary: Franklin County moves from the now dissolved Western Valley District into the Piedmont. As they make the transition they will face a tough schedule. How about this - nine of their opponents made the playoffs a season ago. Coach Jones needs his senior class to step up. Thomas Church and Sean Jones will be the Eagles two main running backs. The coaching staff decided to switch to a 3-4 defense to take advantage of their smaller, quicker defenders. Franklin County lost its starting QB before the season began in 2012. That is not the case so far this year. Two QBs are battling for the starting job.
