Jeff Graham Now Franklin's Winningest Baseball Coach

Last night the Franklin Panthers Baseball team defeated Smoky Mountain 12-7. On top of beating our rival Smoky Mountain, Franklin's Head Coach Jeff Graham got his 162nd win at FHS. Graham passed Coach Tom Raby with the win for the all time wins by a head coach at FHS.
He will be first to say that the credit goes to the kids who have played for him, but Graham does deserve a great deal of credit. He led Franklin to it's only baseball state title back in 2001 and has established Franklin as a contender in the MAC year in and year out. Frankin constantly goes against one of the best best baseball programs in the state in TC Roberson, but always stay in the hunt for a conference win and title run. He has also sent several players on to play at the college level and even in the pro ranks.

Congrats to Coach Graham for his hard work and this great accomplishment.
