WATCH: Anthony Brown delivers strike to true freshman Troy Franklin for 1st career TD

·1 min read

This game is becoming a game of first.

Initially, it was Bryon Cardwell scoring his first rushing touchdown. Now it’s freshman Troy Franklin with his first touchdown reception. The 6-foot-2, 12-pounder used every inch to jump in the air to get Anthony Brown’s floater. He then turned and stretched for the end zone for the 28-yard score.

Franklin came into the game with seven career catches, but so far against the Buffaloes, he has two catches for 44 yards and a touchdown. The former four-star recruit from East Palo Alto, Calif. was the second-ranked player overall in California and the top wide receiver by 247Sports, Rivals and the 247 composite.

He is slowly becoming a very good receiver for the Ducks.
