First round of Athletic Hall of Fame inductees honored at Friday’s game.

Before the homecoming game against East Henderson, the track at the Panther Pit was lined with Franklin High School legends. Last year the FHS Athletic Booster Club took nominations from the public and then narrowed down the search to six inductees, who each embody the pride and dedication it takes to be a Panther. Those individuals were honored as the first round of inductees to Franklin's Athletic Hall of Fame.

The first honoree was not only recognized for his accomplishments as an athlete at Franklin High School, but was honored for his contributions to athletics on the collegiate level.
