I’ve said this before, but I am truly blessed to have such a strong, continued following in my pursuit to be renowned as Bermuda’s best squash player in history. Undoubtedly, I will continue to train, improve and give 100 percent of myself to be the best player I can be while representing my island home,” comments Micah Franklin.

Shane McDonnell, Sales Director of Digicel Bermuda adds, “Micah Franklin has shown a huge commitment to placing Bermuda on the World Squash stage. This young athlete spends a great deal of time training in the UK and competing overseas, yet still finds time to work with young squash players when on island. We at Digicel have seen huge growth in Micah and are delighted to have him included in the diverse list of brand ambassadors we support.”
