Inside Ram Page: Sports Writer Robin Franklin

Hello, my name is Robin Franklin. I was born in Fredericksburg, Texas, and grew up in Seminole, Texas. My parents, Susan and Rob, still live in Seminole, while my two sisters, Morgan and Conner, and two brothers, Blue and Skyler, live all over Texas. The family dog, Beasty, and cat, Ollie, live with my parents in Seminole. As the youngest of five siblings who graduated college, it is no surprise that attending Angelo State would be my plan after high school. Now that I’m at ASU, I’ve had many new adventures, including working for The Ram Page. I have been with The Ram Page for about a year and help out with writing for sports around campus.
