Franklin's Kyle Linville, Jonny West to Continue Gridiron Careers Overseas

More news about: Franklin

Franklin, Ind. - After record-setting gridiron careers at Franklin College, senior wide receiver Kyle Linville (Speedway, Ind./Speedway) and senior quarterback Jonny West (Speedway, Ind./Speedway) will continue as professionals in international stadiums.

Linville, a first-team All-American, has signed a contract to play for the Schwaebisch Hall Unicorns of the German Football League for the 2014 season. The 14-game league schedule begins on April 26 and will conclude on September 6.

The wide receiver set Franklin receiving marks for career receptions (308), receiving yards (4,691) and touchdowns (53). He set a single-season school record with 108 catches last season, while his 1,426 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns in 2012 are also single-season school marks.

Linville earned 2013 All-American honors by the American Football Coaches Association and D3footballcom, and was named an Academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Meanwhile, West is set to play for the Turku Trojans in Finland, beginning in June.

"I am definitely excited about being able to continue playing football," he said. "The offensive system is very similar to the one we used at Franklin. I am also looking forward to traveling and seeing a different part of the world."

West holds Franklin's school records for career passing yards (10,653), touchdowns (105), completions (894) and total offense (10,910). He was named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) Offensive Most Valuable Player in 2011 and 2013. West led all NCAA Division III quarterbacks with 3,939 passing yards last season.

Franklin won its fourth consecutive HCAC championship in 2013 and advanced to the second round of the Division III playoffs for the third consecutive season. The Grizzlies won eight games last season and has totaled 36 victories during the past four seasons.
