TELL CITY—Tell City senior Jimmy Phillips will follow in his father’s footsteps as a football player for Franklin College.
As an NCAA Division III school, Franklin cannot give athletic scholarships. But last week Phillips accepted an academic scholarship to play for the Grizzlies.
He said Hanover, Lindsey Wilson, Earlham, Anderson, Bluffton and Case Western also showed interest in him, but one reason he chose Franklin was his dad, Mike, played there and his mother also went to school there.
