Franklin Football returns home with their Homecoming game on Friday against Attleboro

Siddharth Chandra, Writer

As FHS’ fall sports enter the final stretch of regular season games, Franklin Football returns to play this Friday after a bye week to play at home against Attleboro.


This game is more than just a home game: it’s Franklin’s homecoming game for 2022. At halftime, each grade’s Class Officers and Student Government Representatives will be on their respective floats with each rocking a unique theme.


After nearly a month since their last home game, the Panthers return in a highly anticipated matchup with the Bombardiers. If Franklin can take down Attleboro, it would be the program’s 6th straight homecoming weekend featuring a win for FHS Football.


Last year Franklin’s game against Attleboro was their closest all year: Attleboro displayed their resiliency despite being such an inexperienced squad. The Bombardiers return with a team that is again fairly young and inexperienced compared to the Panthers.


However, they boast a 4-2 record, with their only 2 losses coming against Division II powerhouses Milford and KP. Franklin will face Milford next Friday (10/28/2022) at home and KP on Thanksgiving (11/24/22) at KP.

Attleboro comes off as an impressive game against the Stoughton Black Knights, winning 42-19. Playing an all-around well game, Attleboro proved themselves as a team that can compete.


Franklin comes into this game off an electrifying win against Taunton or as some called it, the “Sidwell Bowl”.  The Panthers look to end their regular season with 2 wins and enter the playoffs as one of the top seeds in the Division 1 tournament. That pursuit will begin tomorrow in front of a packed homecoming crowd.


The Panthers will continue to really on their pass-heavy offense featuring WR Luke Davis and QB Jase Lyons. Davis (a Boston University Lacrosse commit) comes into this game as one of the top receivers in the state, leading the Hockomock league with 8 TDs. Lyons also leads the Hockomock league, having tossed 13 passing TDs.

Rhe defense has also come to play as a top unit; Franklin’s proven their talent at each level of the defense.


DE Julian Rampino and DE Emmett Lackey will look to continue their pass rush that has proved critical in games, such as Franklin’s 21-20 win over North Attleboro. CB Devine Johnson will look to lock up Attleboro’s #1 receiver. The only question is… Who will that WR1 be?

Bombardier receiver Aidan Panteges could be considered for that position, having caught 2 TD passes from QB Matt Harvie this season. WR Anthony Saliviati has also proved himself as an elusive playmaker, a “Wideback” type of player.

Regardless, the Panthers’ defense will look to replicate last year’s homecoming game performance (a 35-0 win vs. Taunton) and pull out another “hoco” weekend shutout.

Homecoming games are always highly anticipated, and with the Panthers being away for the past month, Panther fans will be more than happy to see their team play at Pisini Stadium again. The following day (after the game), FHS will host their Homecoming Dance in the gym from 7-10. If you haven’t got your tickets yet, get them here!
