Twelve Questions with Emily Franklin
First Year of Footy: Not sure on year, been a while
Current Team: Reynella
Favourite Playing Position: Centre Half Forward
Playing Number: 11
What is your favourite way to spend an off-day?
"I love swimming so going to the swimming pool or beach as well as I play volleyball so love going out with my family and friends hitting the volleyball at each other."
What is your favourite oval to play on and why?
"My favourite oval would definitely be south Adelaide as it's a larger oval and I feel like your more freely to run as a few other local ovals aren't as wide so you feel like your going from one side to the other in no time."
What was it that motivated you to play footy?
"A while ago I started training with the boys Friday nights while my brother trained and wanted to play but mum wasn't to keen on it but dad kept pushing and convinced her to let me play and I loved it ever since."
How would you describe your own footballing journey?
"It's been up and down for sure I'd say my best year was year before Covid I was at my best training hard but during Covid it was stop-start stop-start with all the restrictions as well as I started getting quite sick and I had a surgery so I'm getting back into it and hoping next season I'll be back to my best ability."
What has been your favourite footballing experience and why?
"My favourite footy experience has been making teams and winning games with my best friends."
Who is your sporting/footy role model and why?
"One of my sporting role models would be my dad, he boxes and has for many years and he always tells me I'm my worst enemy and to beat that and play for myself as well as my team. As well as Cathy Freeman she made her dreams come true and I think she is a big inspiration."
What would you say is your most favourite and least favourite thing about footy?
"My favourite thing would we meeting new people I have created new friends with people I wouldn't think I ever would and my least favourite thing would be the occasional hot days as we live in SA the weather is up and down and it is the worst to play on extremely hot days, you die in the first five minutes."
