Terrence Franks is a senior running back for the Texas State Football team. On October 6 he was named National Running Back of The Week by the College Football Performance Awards.

Franks set a school record and had the sixth-highest yardage total in Sun Belt Conference history when he ran for career-highs of 284 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries to lead Texas State to a 35-30 victory over Idaho.

I asked Franks some fun off the field questions for Bobcat fans to get to know him better.

Kiersten Ehr: Franks explained that the football movie “The Little Giants” led him to pursue football.
Terrence Franks: I started playing football when I was eight years old. I started watching the movie “The Little Giants” and watched my brother play. My dad, he used to play, so I started to take it on.

KE: Franks told me that he really wasn’t sure what position he wanted to excel in, but he quickly made notice of his fast speed.
TF: I started off as a running back. I didn’t know what I was going to do. They just wanted me to run some plays and drills and I found out I was a good runner. I was pretty fast, so I started playing running back, quarterback and other stuff.

KE:  Franks took notice of how important it is to become a patient player in sports.
TF: Just to be patient. You don’t know what you’re going to get. That’s the most important thing I have so far up ’till now.

KE: When Franks isn’t at football practice he likes to play baseball.
TF: I like playing baseball. Baseball is really my first actual sport [I played] when I was real little. The first sport I was comfortable with.

KE: Franks is determined to get into NFL shape and hopes to keep playing football after he graduates.
TF: Ultimately, to train for the NFL. [I] hope to make it to the next level, if not, I have a degree I’ll get this December.

KE: Franks wants to make sure he explores the wonders of the world.
TF: Just to travel around the world, make sure I’m relaxed and I’m doing everything I can before I slow down.
