I am writing on behalf of Deverick (D.J) Franklin. D.J is a 6'5" Guard. In addition to being a wonderfully skilled athlete, he has been a joy to work with over the past three years. No student at our school is held in higher regard by fellow students and faculty than he is. He treats everyone with respect and gives his best effort to every endeavor. I appreciate his humility and his willingness to work with others. D.J has a good spirit about him, but it in no way inhibits his competitiveness. He is very very coachable, a great teammate and wants desperately to become the best player and person he can possibly be. He has been an absolute joy to coach, both on and off the court. I cannot give a player a higher compliment. This young man is deserving of every good thing that awaits him.
If I can be of any assistance, don't hesitate to call.

My name is Deverick Franklin Jr. and I am number thirty (#30) on the Monticello High School basketball team. I have been playing high school basketball since the fall of 2013, I was moved to Sr. Varsity in the fall season my freshmen year of Jr. High. I am 6 foot 5 inches tall, 170 pounds shooting guard. I bring to the game basketball I.Q., great court vision, shooting abilities, and taking people of the dribble. My freshman year, I was the leading scorer averaging 22 points per game and was named All Conference, All District and MVP. My sophomore year, I was the leading scorer of the team averaging 17.3 points a game, was selected All Conference, and All State. My junior year our team won the 2016 state championship with me being the leading scorer again with 18 points a game. I also was selected All Conference and All state as well receiving an award at the state tournament game for MVP of state tournament. The devotion to my team and pursuit of improving my game has awarded me the privilege of being a starter and leader of my team for over four years now. I will graduate from high school in May 2016 with a 3.6 GPA or higher and with at 21 on the ACT. I also hope to get an opportunity to play basketball at the next level with a reputable institution where I can excel at getting an above average education. I'm a member of National Honor Society and National Beta Club where I have been serving and doing volunteer work for my community for over the past 4 years, with intentions of doing more, and appreciate helping others every chance I can. I strive to do my best in everything I do. Given an opportunity to be a part of your team and uphold such a position would be my privilege, so I thank you for thoughtful consideration in possibly selecting me Deverick Franklin Jr. as a new "team player' on behalf of your school.
