Posted by Communications on 1/17/2018

Franklin doesn’t have a football team, but it now has an alumnus who has been signed to a Division I football program.  Manuel Orona, who graduated from Franklin in 2016, and played football for Trevor Browne, has signed a letter of intent to attend Memphis State.  The offensive lineman played two years at Glendale Community College after high school. 

Orona was a student in the firefighting program at Franklin and competed on the school’s state champion fire muster team.  He has a younger brother and sister who attend Franklin.
