In recognition of his impending “retirement” as a student from Franklin County High School at the end of the semester, the Eagles boys basketball program has presented Aaron “LeBron James” Cole with his retired jersey and letter. The presentation took place during a pre-game Senior Night ceremony in which the Eagles basketball and cheerleading seniors and their parents were honored. Afterwards, Cole (left) displays his jersey while standing beside FCHS assistant boys basketball coach Jamie Wright, who served as one of Cole’s many teachers during his years at the high school, in front of a trophy case inside Samuel M. Hawkins-Central Gymnasium.
