Marcus Sayers spent three years coaching the wrestling team at Franklin High School before getting the opportunity to lead the Panthers this season.

“I am very excited that Coach Jay Brooks has given me the opportunity to be the head coach this year,” said Sayers.


At many sporting events that take place involving Franklin High School, the varsity cheerleaders can be seen and heard attempting to get the crowd behind the home team. During the fall, they flood the sidelines of the football field and the bleachers during the volleyball games and in the winter, they stand behind the basketball teams as they rack up wins. They are an important part of the sporting culture at FHS, but like any other sport, the squad has to put in the preparation and hard work.


The students at Victory Christian School, located just over Cowee Mountain in Jackson County, have always wanted to show the public their mascot. For years they have been known as the Victory Cardinals, but only in name, never in physical form.
