AUDIO: L’burg, Franklin Co. Will Score “Touchdowns For Texas”
By Mike Perleberg
(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – There’s hope that Lawrenceburg and Franklin County high school football teams will light up the scoreboard when they meet on September 15.
The more points, the more money the City of Lawrenceburg will donate to Hurricane Harvey relief. Lawrenceburg City Council on Monday voted to donate $500 for each touchdown scored by either team in the Tigers’ homecoming football game under the lights at Dick Meador Stadium on Friday, September 15.
Mayor Kelly Mollaun has dubbed the effort “Touchdowns for Texas”.
“City council is willing to step up and help out whenever they can or wherever they can – no matter if it is here in Lawrenceburg, the surrounding communities, or even in Texas,” Mollaun said on Eagle Country 99.3 on Wednesday.

If history is any indication, the city had better be prepared to write a big check. Since 2008, each meeting between Franklin County and Lawrenceburg has resulted in at least 54 combined points. Eighty-one points were scored between the two teams when they played in 2013.
“We’re hoping that Lawrenceburg scores more touchdowns for the other team. That’s for sure,” the mayor added.
Eagle Country 99.3 will broadcast the Franklin County versus Lawrenceburg game live on 99.3 FM, www.eaglecountryonline.com, and the station’s free streaming app for iOS and Android. Pregame coverage will start at 6:40 p.m. on Friday, September 15.
