A Quick Word About Franklin 
"Franklin is an astute thinker and exceptional athlete whose commitment to the teams of which he is a part is unparalleled. He contributes at the highest level in both tangible and intangible ways. Whether your definition of success includes wins, broken school records, or intense levels of tenacity, Franklin can claim it. He looks forward to continued involvement with running at the intercollegiate level and I have every confidence he will be an asset to his teammates both on and off the track.” ~ Mrs. Jennifer Scott, Franklin’s College Counselor
