Temple vs. Franklin (12/18)

Christmas brings us some outstanding tourneys and the Battle of the State is among those interesting events.

Our game of the week for East Tennessee will feature the favorite in Class A against one of the better teams in the mid-state area.

Temple will be making the trek to show they belong among the state elite regarldess of class. Jeremy Sexton leads the way for Temple. The senior has some D1 recruitment and will be the featured player in the offense. Jarod Johnson, James Kemp and Brandon Andrews will all contribute to the Temple cause.

For Franklin big James Haddix is having a sensational senior campaign. The big man has been steady and is showing marked improvement in his consistency and effort. Also playing big for Franklin will be Daniel Miller-Mullholland, Peyton Henry and Jamaul Starnes.

We will post a story about the Battle of the State sometime tomorrow.
