Frankton's Korn signs with Lipscomb

FRANKTON — One road trip south made a tough decision much easier.

As a result, Frankton's Aaron Korn signed Thursday a national letter of intent to play basketball and attend Lipscomb University next year.

"I knew it would be a difficult decision, deciding where you are going to spend the next four years of your life," said Korn, who has scored more points (1,482) for Frankton than any other boys player in school history. "But once I visited, the decision became easy. It was the first place I went where I really felt at home."

Lipscomb, located in Nashville, Tenn., has a basketball program that's under a new regime this season as Casey Alexander takes control.

"The coach came from Stetson," said Korn. "He recruited me while he was there so I knew him already."

"It is a great fit for Aaron," said Frankton varsity coach Brent Brobston. "They have a high academic standard and that suits Aaron well plus they have an excellent coaching staff. (Coach Alexander) is a quality, quality coach."

Korn enters his senior season with work to do as both an individual and as part of the Eagles' team. Frankton has a lot of key components back from last year's 18-6 squad that took Wapahani to double overtime before losing the sectional title game.

"There are a lot of expectations for this team this year and that's good," said Korn. "We are working very hard to have this be a really good season."

Korn is a leader on that team and he goes about that role in his own way.

"Just the way he plays and the way he works hard every day — he leads by example," said Brobston. "This year's team has a lot of goals they would like to achieve."

Korn is also working physically on things to make his transition easier when he arrives on campus to play for the Bisons.
