Trent Franklin is a talented multi purpose athlete for Haynesville La. high school where he plays quarterback and safety for his father David Franklin.
Trent has led the Golden Tornadoes to a state championship two out of the last three years. The 6-2 190 lb. athlete is also one of the top 400 meter track athletes in the state of Louisiana finishing 3rd during the state championships last season.
Franklin is also a member of the state champion 4x2 400 meter team. When asked what his greatest strengths are as football player Trent answered," my speed and size". Speaking of his size, it appears that coach Billings sees Franklin as a Spur safety where the defensive staff would like to add some length to that position.
Trent visited the Southern Miss campus early this Summer where he had a chance to talk to the staff and check out the campus and facilities. When asked his thoughts on his Summer visit he had this to say.
"I love the tradition of Southern Miss! I love the black and gold! I would love to play in it!"
Trent is a very good student maintaining a 3.0 GPA. He currently plans to visit USM, Houston, and ULaLa. Trent is a big, athletic athlete that could add some size and length to the safety position.
