CSUN player called up to play for U.S. under-23 squad

Sean Franklin, senior defenseman, received the call to represent the U.S. under-23 team. The team of 18 players traveled to Japan and tied the Japanese under-22 men’s squad yesterday 0-0. They will then face a J-League team on Feb. 23 to conclude the two-game tour. Franklin played all 90 minutes of the game.

This is not the first time Franklin has played for the U.S. In spring 2004, Franklin played for the U.S. men’s under-20 squad.

Though recognized for his solid play at defense, Franklin did score a goal and had four assists last season.
