Other sports: I play basketball.

Favorite hobby outside of football? I like golfing with my friends and family.

What’s your pregame routines/superstitions? After I get taped up and ready to go in the locker room I listen to music and get my mind right.

Favorite gameday meal? Spaghetti and meatballs with a bunch of fruit.

Favorite NFL player to watch? Broderick Jones. I love how aggressive he is.

Something people don’t know about you that they would be surprised to know? I got a 4.45 GPA this year and that surprises a lot of people.

Favorite high school football moment so far? Winning the conference last year at North Catholic. I’ll never forget it.

Biggest mentor and why? My dad. He used to play and coach football, so he is constantly helping me get better.

Describe yourself on the field? I’m a big, physical tackle that can excel in both pass and run blocking situations.

What are your goals this offseason? To get faster and stronger.

D1 Offers? Miami (Oh.).

Camp schedule? So far this summer I’ve been to Pitt, Penn State, Virginia Tech and WVU.

What’s the recruiting process been like? The recruiting process has been a great experience and I’ve gotten to learn a lot. I’ve been able to talk to many different coaches and am hoping to build even more connections as I enter my junior year.

Coach Talk

“Sean is a one-of-a-kind talent when you’re talking size. It’s not often you get a kid that’s 6-5, 300-plus pounds that’s athletic and can move the way Sean does. He’s a very cerebral player, great student. Started all 13 games as a sophomore last year and looking for a tremendous year this year. He plays tough and physical in between the whistles. He’s a complete package of size, smarts and pedigree on the field. He’s going to continue to get better and stronger and more of a student of the game than he already is.”   — Mars head coach Eric Kasperowicz


Franklin holds a lot of potential at the tackle position as a long, lengthy lineman. He does a solid job at maintaining the pocket for his quarterback in the pass game and mans the trenches well. When it comes to run blocking, Franklin moves well to create holes and can also get out front in space to provide a block.
