Name: Nathan Franklin
Hometown: Wilmington, North Carolina
High School: Hoggard High School
Notes: The 5-11, 160-pound kicker from John T. Hoggard High School in Wilmington, NC had a stellar junior season and followed it with a great senior campaign. In 2005 Franklin once again displayed his ability as a place-kicker. He also improved his punting average to 45 yards per kick. 90% of his kickoffs were touchbacks.
He is generally considered the top kicker in North Carolina and represented the state in the 2005 Shrine Bowl. Kicking guru Chris Sailer considers Franklin the No. 4 kicker and the No. 5 punter in the class of 2006.
