YOUNGSTOWN OH- The city of Youngstown has come to be known as “Grit City.” Not too many programs in the city embody that mentality more than the East girls basketball program. They will make it known every night just how hard they work. They are returning a core group of leaders that will show their younger athletes what it means to have that work ethic. No one will be looking forward for their games against East, because the Golden Bears are never going to stop coming at you.
Head coach Tanisha Franklin was able to join Running Point this week to help us preview the team’s season. She talks with Ty Bartell, and Anthony Hartwig about returning their point guard, what it means to be a Bear, and much more. Episode 1 of Coach’s Corner with Tanisha Franklin is live.
