Why aren't more of these players being recruited by Big Name colleges? We all have seen the stats of the Franklin County players, their size, their strength, their speed, yet they are all going over to Co-Lin, why is that?
Another thing, why sin't Coach Tony Gibb the head coach? Is it that much racism in the south still, to where Blacks aren't allowed the chance to prove their abilities?
Why did DJ Shaw go to Co-Lin, instead of USC or UW, maybe even USM or J State? Why are these young, talented football players given a chance to show their skills on a much bigger stage and much better schools?
Wake up Mississippi, it's time to play catch up with the rest of the country! There are so many ways to get the attention of scouts from bigger schools; learn them!

I agree that Franklin Co. has some great talent and that they should be recruited more! Some of the reason they go to Co-Lin is the lack of recruitment by the bigger schools but some of it is lack of encouragement to go to the bigger schools and some is the lack of money. It's expensive to go to one of these schools if you aren't on a FULL scholarship. Also, Coach Gibbs was offered the head coach position several years ago and he turned it down.

Starkville, thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. You seem to know quite a bit about Franklin County and your answers are so direct.
Do you see a brighter future for the kids coming out of Franklin County? And, let's not forget academics. Are these kids being prepared on that level for a college future?
Why would coach Gibbs turn down the head position, are you privy to that information?...don't answer.
