Franklin’s big man, Monte Britt is prepared to protect the paint this season.
Britt recently transferred into Franklin from Rainier Beach high school and he is excited for the fresh new start with the Quakers!
”Franklin is a great school, it’s a big change coming from Rainier Beach, but I’m excited to be a student here and the chance to play for their basketball team” said Britt.
Standing at 6’8, Britt has the size to have a huge impact in the post. He does a great job on the defensive end, being vocal and using his length to block shots and cause havoc. He is still improving on the offensive end, but rebounds at a high level.
“When I’m playing, I try to focus on grabbing every rebound and bringing high energy on defense.”
Britt looks to improve his post game. He has been working out every day, trying to become a quicker big that can sprint the floor and get out in transition. He’s also been working on his ball handling and finishes in the paint.
”All summer and I have been in the gym daily, preparing my self for my final season. I want to dominate the post and help my team win games.”
