Oscoda’s Owen Franklin signs with Northwood

OSCODA, Mich. — Many area athletes in Northeast Michigan are showing off their talents in more then just one sport. Owen Franklin is one of those athletes. Franklin is a three sport athlete (football, basketball, baseball) and has been named all-conference (North Star League) in each sport.

Tuesday morning, Oscoda High school held a signing ceremony for Franklin. The senior decided to take his baseball talents to the collegiate level. Franklin signed his commitment letter to play ball at Northwood University.

“Northwood made me feel that I was part of the family,” said Franklin. “I never lost that feeling with Northwood. They’re a fantastic school and have a very good baseball program. It’s the perfect fit for me.”

In the classroom, Franklin will major in Sports Management with a Fashion minor.
