(Milan, Ind.) – The 6’5” frame of Orrin Schmidt is going to make Franklin College’s quarterback a happy camper.

As a senior, Schmidt helped the Indians to a Mid-Indiana Football Conference Championship with 29 receptions for 533 yards and five touchdowns.

Schmidt will join a Grizzles team that went 8-2 last season, including a 7-1 record in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference.
