Friday Night Football... on Saturday Afternoon...

As part of the Champions Classic in Abilene the Saturday game was Abilene High playing the first of three straight out of state opponents, Franklinton High School, from Louisiana. Franklinton, traveled 700 miles, by bus, for this game. And, I have to say I was really impressed I think they brought probably 1,500 fans with them and they certainly held their own. By contrast, Austin Westlake's crowd the night before wasn't near as big and they only had a four hour drive. Franklinton looked really good and has some great players, their quarterback is committed to LSU and another player on the team is also committed to play in the SEC. The game was close early, but Abilene High pulled away in the fourth quarter. It was a fun game to watch and day time football is ALWAYS a good thing!
