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.
