It would likely be futile attempting to convince Franklin Community High School football coach Brian Harbin there are five Class 5A football teams better than No. 6 Center Grove.

Or, for that matter, one or two.

By virtue of Friday night’s 62-6 victory at Franklin, the defending champion Trojans move on to next week’s sectional title game.

Center Grove (10-1) hosts Columbus North (6-5), which advanced with a 17-14 win against visiting Franklin Central in the other sectional semifinal.

“Center Grove is 10-1, and they’re 10-1 for a reason. That is an outstanding football team,” said Harbin after watching the Trojans’ wing-T offense pile up 416 rushing yards and 482 overall. “I’m proud of our kids. They played hard.

“But Center Grove out-hit us and came out and got it.”
