Franklin football program will get flexbone triple-option attack




Adam Reese, the offensive coordinator the past four seasons for defending Class 4A state runner-up Mishawaka High School, has been named the new head football coach at Franklin Community High School.

The hiring of the 35-year-old Plymouth native was approved Monday evening by the Franklin Community School Board of Trustees. Reese replaces Brian Harbin, whose contract was not renewed after producing a 13-28 record in four seasons.

Reese brings his belief in the flexbone triple-option offense with him to Johnson County after helping the Cavemen produce a 41-12 record in his four seasons running the offense. The squad that played for a Class 4A title in November averaged 30 points per game and 34 during its six-game postseason run.
