Adrian Moss Named Boys Varsity Basketball Coach
Franklin Community Schools is excited to announce that Adrian Moss will be named the next Boys Varsity Basketball Coach at Franklin Community High School. The recommendation will be approved by the FCS School Board of Trustees at an April 26 School Board Meeting.
A 2006 graduate of Franklin Community High School, Moss returns to Franklin after serving as the Varsity Assistant and Junior Varsity Head Coach at Fishers High School. Moss is currently employed as a mentor at the Johnson County Juvenile Detention Center. An outstanding high school player, Moss was named the Johnson County and Indy South Player of the Year.
Moss continued to shine after his high school career being named an NCAA Division II All American and appearing in back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances. He was also a National Basketball League of Canada 1st round draft pick. During his coaching career, Moss holds a 32-13 record over the last 2 years as Assistant Coach in the MIC (Warren Central) and HCC (Fishers) against a top 10 schedule.
"We are excited to see Coach Adrian Moss back where belongs as a Grizzly Cub,” Director of Athletics Bill Doty said. “Many of us remember him wearing the Franklin Blue as a tenacious player at both ends of the floor. Franklin fans will undoubtedly see his teams play with that same tenacity and fire. Coach Moss has many experiences as a coach and player that will serve our basketball community well."
"I am excited for our students and families to have Adrian coming home to lead the Franklin basketball program,” FCHS Principal Steve Ahaus said. “He is a relationship-driven coach and person, and it will be great to have him back on the court in Franklin blue."
"You can expect to see a Franklin Program that plays extremely hard, confident, up-tempo, together, aggressive and smart,” Coach Moss explains. “Franklin has a rich tradition dating back to the 1920's and it is vital that the program returns to competing at a high level. IHSAA Class 4A basketball in Indiana is big time basketball and we must raise our level of skill development, detail, and competition.”
Moss goes on to say, “It all starts at the youth level making it every Franklin boy's dream to play basketball for Franklin Community. Our players will show great character, be students first while striving to be the best person and basketball player they can be. Our goal as a coaching staff will be to mold great young men and take the appropriate steps to put our program in the best position to win games that will raise banners. This town and these players deserve to have the best possible experience, and we will do everything in our power to provide that at every level."
Moss replaces Brad Dickey’s resignation.
