Football: Male vs Franklin, TN

I ventured to Bowling Green Saturday to watch Bobby Redman's Louisville Male Bulldogs square off against the Rebels of Franklin, TN. Former Hopkinsville HS Coach Craig Clayton is now head coach of Franklin.

The scrimmage was pretty much one sided with Franklin dominating Male on both sides of the ball. Although no score is kept officially, Franklin's first teamers defeated Male 41-17. Male would score 2 more times against Franklin's second and third team to make the final 48-31.

The good news for Male was their running back #26 Green. Bobby told me that he has already committed to Ohio State where his brother plays. This kid is the real deal and he packed the Male offense.

I road down to Bowling Green with Christian Co. Head Coach Steve Lovelace. Christian Co. plays Male in Week #2. The scrimmage was held at Greenwood HS where former Hopkinsville native Greg Cavanaugh is the Head Coach. Lovelace who had attended the Hopkinsville scrimmage in Paducah on Friday Night said that Hoptown looked very good in the scrimmage.

Football season is finally here and I will be traveling to Vanderbilt Saturday to watch Franklin, TN open up in a Bowl Game.
