Mizzou Tiger Song of the Week: James Franklin


Is it ironic that senior quarterback James Franklin’s favorite song is called ROAR by Katy Perry? Is it ironic that Perry’s lyrics to the song mention “the eye of the tiger”? Perhaps, but who really cares about irony when Mizzou’s starting quarterback can get pumped for a game by listening to his favorite song?

Franklin said he listens to the song all the time. Sometimes, James finds himself listening to the song 30 times in a row on repeat… both before and after games!

Hopefully James’s go-to pump up will give him the energy, focus and concentration needed to lead the Tigers to another win against Indiana this weekend. Get your ROAR on!
