FRANKLIN FURNACE — So, you liked the Gus Macker tournament? Well, here’s an encore event.

For the second straight year, the Green Bobcats football boosters will host a 3-on-3 basketball tournament July 15-16 at the high school.

“This is a really fun event. It gives people a chance to play some street basketball and help the football program at the same time,” Green football coach Kevin Sheridan said.
