KING AND QUEEN COURTHOUSE—Franklin amassed 431 yards rushing in a 66-0 thrashing of King & Queen in a non-district football game Friday night.

Franklin was able to use a string of running backs in the game as the Broncos went up 54-0 at halftime.

Martinez Hill rushed for 109 yards on 10 carries, Isaiah Hudson ran for 88 yards on nine carries, and Malik Brown rushed for 72 yards on six carries to lead the Franklin offense (3-0).

The Broncos also played a top-notch defensive game, allowing just 25 yards of total offense.

Franklin has allowed just six points this season in three games.

“Our defense is coming along,” said Darren Parker, Franklin head coach. “The kids are very physical and as coaches we are enjoying watching them perform. We executed tonight in all three aspects of the game.”

Parker said his team will try to continue to improve when it faces West Point at home at 7 p.m. on Friday.

West Point is also undefeated.
