Recruiting the Flyers

The Franklin County football team averaged 50 points a game last season. Most of the players responsible for that production are coming back this season -- including Quarterback, Logan Woodside and Running back/Wide Receiver, Ryan Timmons.

Both are also being heavily recruited to play in college.

"In the last week it's really picked up," Woodside said of the recruiting process, "once you get that first one, then they all start falling."

Troy, Western kentucky, Ohio and Western Illinois want Woodside. And that list is growing.

"I've been to a bunch of camps this year and I've been going up against some of the best quarterbacks in the nation," Woodside explained.

A few days ago, Woodside and Timmons went to Ohio State for a camp. The Buckeyes are one of more than a dozen schools expressing interest in Timmons, who has received offers from Kentucky, Arkansas, Illinois, Western Kentucky, Purdue, and Louisiana Tech.

"It's just pressure really and I'm trying to take my time with it," Timmons said, "I'll sit down with my family and talk about what I liked and disliked about the school."

They're also leaning on each other during the process.

"Me and Logan talk once we get back from schools," Timmons admitted.

"I kind of learned from Ryan since he got started before me," Woodside said, "I got the feel of when you kind of know you're going to get an offer or how interested people really are in you."

Odds are good they'll end up signing with different schools, but they plan to make their decision at the same time. And they hope to make it before the season starts.
