Franklinton celebrates Homecoming on Friday when the Demons play against Archbishop Hannan in the District 8-4A opener.

“It’s great for the kids for the memories and the school pride and stuff, but we have to handle it, especially going into district play,” Franklinton coach Guy LeCompte said.

Franklinton comes in with a 2-3 record after defeating previously undefeated Belle Chasse, 24-17.

“There are a lot of things we could’ve done better on Friday,” LeCompte said. “There’s a standard of performance I’d like to reach, but we’re working to get there. We definitely took steps in the right direction. Guys have been working really hard and I’m proud of their effort. I’m extremely proud of guys the way they have stepped up. Last week, we had guys going both ways and they stepped up throughout the whole week in practice and in the game. Leaders are starting to emerge.”
