"We need the community behind us"

Brad Sidwell, athletic director at Franklin High School, said his staff takes a similar approach.

"You're better off having more people helping out and being vigilant," Sidwell said. "We are certainly on the lookout for kids who are suspicious. You want an enthusiastic environment where people enjoy coming to the games to cheer, but even one of those situations (with drunk students) puts a black eye on the whole community, so you want to be on top of it."
