Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Matt Franklin
I'm now entering my fourth school year here at West Port High School serving in the classroom and on our fields as an instructor of Individual Sports and Ourdoor Recreation and Activities courses, as well as the Head Football Coach and Head Boys Weightlifting Coach for the Wolf Pack. I came to West Port following high school stints at Eustis High School where I served as the Defensive Coordinator for the football team, the Boys Head Weightlifting Coach and as a HOPE instructor and Mt. Dora High Schools where I taught English and Intensive Reading while also coaching football. Prior to moving to Florida and coaching high school I began my career at West Virginia University as a Defensive Intern, working primarily with the Defensive Line while finishing off my degree in ACE. After two years at WVU and getting the experience to coach BCS level Division 1 football I then coached as the Defensive Line Coach at Western Illinois University, an FCS level school in the Missouri Valley Conference.
