Johnathan Franklin Named UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week

Sept. 22, 2009

Freshman tailback Johnathan Franklin (Los Angeles, CA/Dorsey HS) of the UCLA football team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Sept. 14-20.

In the 23-9 win over Kansas State on Saturday, Franklin led the Bruins with 119 net yards on 23 carries. He scored UCLA's first touchdown on a three-yard run and also had a rush of 36 yards, the longest of his career. He became the first Bruin to rush for at least 100 yards since Chris Markey did it in the 2007 Las Vegas Bowl. His 119 yards were the most by a Bruin since Kahlil Bell ran for 142 in the 2007 win over California. He leads the Bruins with 242 rushing yards, averaging 80.7 yards per contest, and is sixth in the Pac-10.

This is Franklin's first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and of his career.

Also nominated: Marco Anzures, M. Cross Country; Jenna Belcher, W. Soccer; David Estrada, M. Soccer; Cullen Hennessy, M. Water Polo; Shannon Murakami, W. Cross Country.
