Edgewood coach Scott Clemmons has some ties in this rivalry as well. He’s younger than Brad, but they played one season together in the Edgewood offensive backfield.
“And my brother played with Brad too. They were great friends,” Clemmons said. “I’ve known Brad since I was 4 or 5 years old. I was a sophomore when they were seniors.”
Brad said he doesn’t own much Cougar blue these days. Red and black have been his colors since coming to Franklin more than two decades ago.
“I’ve been here longer than I was at Edgewood,” Brad said. “It’s a serious bragging rights weekend. And our mom is stuck in the middle.”
