After emerging last spring and summer with Chapman Basketball Academy, Tim Franks took his game to another level during this past high school season with Homestead High School (WI). With his play throughout the season, he was able to pick up some hardware for himself. While only a sophomore, not only was he named first team all-conference but also conference player of the year. 

After scoring 11.3 points as a freshman, Franks exploded for 19.3 points per game this season to win those awards as well as lead his team to a 24-3 record. “It was really surreal for me especially because I put this down as one of my goals following my freshman year. I worked hard for it and it’s a nice feeling knowing that the hard work paid off. I obviously owe a lot to my teammates and coaches for helping me achieve the goal,” the 6’4” guard said on winning player of the year honors. While very happy with the award, Franks knows he has more work to do in achieving the more important goal of winning a gold ball. 

Franks has continued to show he is one of the more skilled scorers in his 2024 class in the area. He has great form on his jumper as well as the ability to create his own shot. Though in the upcoming grassroots season he wants to prove much more. “I’m looking to show my defense in the half court and the ability to create for others…I want to show a balanced ability of making the right pass and being unselfish,” Franks said. A few other things he is working on improving include his strength, foot speed, and ability to get open. 

While it is still early in his recruitment as a sophomore, Franks has attracted the interest of several division one programs. As one of the top 2024 guards in the region, he will be a popular name in the coming months.
