Dennis Franks (top), who played football at Michigan in the mid 1970s and afterward four years in the NFL, incorporating the 1979 season with the Detroit Lions, has passed on.
He was brought into the world in western Pennsylvania in McKeesport, in 1953 and experienced childhood in a suburb of Pittsburgh where he went to Bethel Park High. He played linebacker and hostile gatekeeper there. He had an interesting prologue to sports. His mom was public figure-skating champion in Germany in 1942 and 1943, and Franks said on the “Difficult Truth Podcast” in a scene of “After the Gridiron,” that he and his sibling grew up figure skating.
“It assisted with equilibrium and portability,” Franks said on the webcast of his figure skating foundation. His other diversion was guitar.
However, football was his direction to school, and Franks uncovered on the webcast that he got 112 grant offers in view of his support in track and football. Michigan was not among his last three picks, Franks said on the webcast, until he went on a late outing to visit, spending a Monday and Tuesday nearby in 1971. Remaining at midfield at Michigan Stadium fixed his choice.
