This week’s Bowie’s Best Athlete of the Week is Da’Marcis Franklin of New Boston. Da’Marcis is a 17-year-old student at New Boston High School who joined the team for his first Special Olympics this year. He participates in the 50-meter dash and the turbo javelin throw at the spring track and field events as well as plays on the fall softball team. Da’Marcis played football as a freshman and enjoys watching professional football and basketball. His favorite players, he says, are Stephen Curry and CeeDee Lamb. Da’Marcis said he loved attending both the competitions in Cedar Hill and San Antonio for the first time because he got to meet a lot of new people he now calls his friends. He said when he first got there, he was nervous because of how many people were there. But he is now excited to attend in the future.
