Franklin's football players had revenge on their minds going into Saturday's critical game at No. 8 Milford Mill, after the Millers knocked them out of the regional playoffs last season. The Indians got their payback, winning 35-18, but they tempered their reaction to the victory, remembering that they also won the regular-season meeting last year. "We will see them later," Indians junior receiver Jordan Adams said, referring to the possibility of another showdown in the Class 3A North regional playoffs.

Franklin's Jacquez and Jordan Adams didn't need much time on their visit to "Junior Day" at West Virginia before they committed to play football at the Morgantown school. At 12:36 p.m. Saturday, Jordan tweeted: "Verbally committed to WVU. " The twins, who helped lead the Indians to their first state football championship last fall, said they "kinda, sorta" knew they would commit to the Mountaineers because they had been West Virginia fans "for a while. " Franklin coach Anthony Burgos said he joked with the juniors, after he heard about the commitment, that they had been West Virginia fans since they were freshmen.

The state Class 3A football championship figured to be a high-scoring affair with Franklin and Linganore averaging more than 40 points each, but defense took over early and a touchdown pass on fourth-and-20 provided the offensive jolt. Late in the third quarter, Franklin quarterback Jacquez Adams hit Steven Smothers with a 27-yard touchdown pass on that fourth-down play to give the No. 9 Indians a 14-7 edge en route to a 20-7 victory at M&T Bank Stadium for the first state football championship in school history.

Franklin didn't waste any time asserting its speed and athletic advantage over Huntingtown in Friday night's Class 3A state football semifinal. Quarterback Jacquez Adams threw the first of his six touchdown passes 30 yards to Steven Smothers less than five minutes into the game and the No. 11 Indians rolled 49-7 past the Hurricanes in Calvert County. The Indians (11-2) are headed to the state final for the second time in four years and will meet Linganore, from Frederick County, for the Class 3A championship at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday at 7 p.m. The Lancers, who won the last of their five state titles in 2009, edged No. 13 and two-time defending champion River Hill, 41-38, in Friday's other 3A semifinal.

Although nobody on Franklin's state final-bound football team played for the 2010 Indians, who also reached the state championship game, that game's result left a lasting impression on members of this year's team. "I remember it was a crazy game," said Indians senior Marquis Miller, who was at M&T Bank Stadium that night. "Both teams played their hearts out, but at the end of the day, just seeing our guys on that field crying - there were 22 seniors on that team - and knowing that was their last game and that they couldn't walk away with a state ring, it was devastating, even to me. " Many of the 2010 players, including Ian Thomas, Mark Venable, Navassa Brown, Chris Jefferson, Josh Sherer and Ryan Bacote, have been in touch with the current Indians throughout their high-scoring playoff drive, encouraging them as they try to finish what the alumni came so close to in that 21-14 loss to Wilde Lake three years ago. Following a 49-7 win at Huntingtown last Friday, the No. 9 Indians (11-2)

Sometimes the quarterback and wide receiver need only a quick hand signal to relay a change of plans at the line of scrimmage. Other times, it's a shared glance. Or, they just know. C. Milton Wright's Omar and Osiah Walker, Franklin's Jacquez and Jordan Adams and Perry Hall's Jeff and Jerry Iweh have felt that connection all their lives, so it's not surprising to see it on the football field. It's not just about being brothers; it's about being twins. At quarterback, Omar, Jacquez and Jeff have experienced moments when each has thrown the ball without seeing his brother down field only to find Osiah, Jordan or Jerry coming out of nowhere to catch it. It's that "twin thing.
