(Brookville, Ind.) – Two Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference football rivals will clash in Brookville on Friday night.

The Lawrenceburg High School Tigers will visit the Franklin County Wildcats. Both teams are 1-3 and on two game losing streaks.

The game will air live on Eagle Country 99.3. John Blackwell and Jack Clevenger will have the call starting at 6:40 p.m. Kickoff is at 7:00.

Lawrenceburg’s most recent loss came in a heartbreaker at The Pit. Up by two scores against Greensburg in the fourth quarter, the Tigers gave up the lead and lost 34-33. LHS failed to convert a late two-point conversion attempt which would have given them the lead.

“My thought was that we were going to have to go for two anyway at some point to win the game, so why not now?” says LHS head coach Ryan Knigga. “I also talked to the kids about that play being magnified and people talking about that, but there’s a bunch of plays in a game and I’m a believer that one play don’t make or break a football game.”

Knigga has admired the play of his freshman quarterback, Garrett Yoon, in his first four games at the varsity level. Against Greensburg, he threw for 344 yards.

“He has great moxy, carries himself well, is a leader in the huddle,” he observed.

Friday’s game in Brookville will be the first on a natural grass field for Lawrenceburg this season, says Knigga. He expects the grass to be cut tall.

Franklin County is led by new head coach Wes Gillman, who came over to FCHS last season as an assistant coach. Junior quarterback Brady Bogan has passed for 392 yards and five touchdowns this season, while also running a team-leading 32 times for 149 yards and a score. Bogan's favorite receiving target is Clayton Spurlock, with 17 catches for 199 yards and three TDs in four games.

  • Costume Swap at the Dearborn County Recycling Center

    The Dearborn County Recycling Center’s Costume Swap was created as an annual event offering customers the chance to share and reuse costumes that would otherwise only be worn once. Last year over 800 individuals used the program. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once. Over 1,000 costumes for adults and children are available. Masks, wigs, makeup, accessories, treat bags and décor are also available. All available costumes are clean and in good condition, with many being brand new. The sizes of costumes range from infant and toddler to adult sizes. Costume Swap even has a small selection of pet costumes. Participants are asked to bring a costume that is clean, in ready-to-wear condition, and free of rips, tears, and stains. To be considered for exchange, all costumes must also be complete with original items, including masks and accessories that came with the costume originally. Those without a costume to exchange are asked to make a cash donation to the reuse program. Shopping times and the number of guests allowed to shop at a time will be limited. Visit dearborncountyrecycles.com for more information. Participants should be prepared with a donation in case their costume is not accepted. The program does not operate as a charity. Costume Swap is open to everyone; it is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents.
