Netflix documentary to feature Auburn QB John Franklin III

East Mississippi Community College has become a powerhouse in junior college football, pumping out Division I players every year. Now it’s about to hit the airwaves in an upcoming Netflix documentary titled, “Last Chance U.”

The school, located in tiny Scooba, Mississippi, has been home to a handful of players who ended up in the SEC over the years including Ole Miss quarterbacks Chad Kelly and Bo Wallace, and Alabama defensive linemen Jarran Reed, D.J. Pettway and Quinton Dial.

The latest EMCC player to sign with an SEC school is Auburn Tigers quarterback John Franklin III. The former Florida State transfer signed with the Tigers in December, and many believe he has as good a chance as any to win the starting job at Auburn. Franklin, who is featured in the trailer below, will be one of the players highlighted in the documentary.

Netflix will premiere the six-part series on July 29.
