James Franklin Speaks At THON, Leads Loudest ‘We Are’ Chant Of The Weekend

James Franklin made an appearance at THON two days in, and he spoke on stage alongside wide receiver and 2016 THON dancer Matt Zanellato, Franklin’s daughter, and the football team’s THON Child.

He started by saying that his daughter collected $100 around their house, and she will donate it to THON’s total. Then, in typical James Franklin fashion, he fired up the crowd.

He ended his short appearance with, “Keep going strong. Keep the energy going, keep making a positive difference in everyone’s lives.”
