Secure your section of Franklin Lion History
Robertson County News
On Thursday, July 13, you have the opportunity to bring a bit of Franklin Lion’s Football history home with you. FISD will be giving away rolls of turf, played on by the “Back to Back” State Champions, the Franklin Lion’s football team. Each roll of turf is 5 yards wide and approximately 25 yards long (making them extremely heavy, so make sure to bring help for loading). FISD will not be cutting the rolls down to smaller sizes. Franklin ISD recommends that a lowboy or flatbed trailer with two 3500 lb axles minimum should be used. They are also not permitting cattle or cargo trailers. Rolls will be given in the order of the trailers. No specific rolls will be given (for example, you will not be given the endzone just because you asked for it). There will be 100+ rolls of turf available, and it is all on a first come, first serve basis. On July 17, you may pick up multiple rolls of turf if any happens to be left over. The first day to pick up turf was on Monday, July 10. If you would like to get some before it’s too late, now is the time. The turf will be available from 4:00pm to 6:00pm, so make sure to stop by with your trailer if you are interested.
