2012 - Big West Defender of the Year

Joe Franco competed in all but one match in his final season with the Matadors. He scored one goal and added an assist for three points on his way to being named the Big West Conference Defender of the Year. He earned a spot on the All-Big West First Team and the NSCAA All-Far West Region Second Team. Franco's goal came in the season-opening win over Portland and he had the game-winning assist in a home win over UC Davis. At the conclusion of his senior season, Franco was invited to participate in the 2013 adidas MLS Combine in Florida.

2011

Joe Franco started all 19 matches at right back for Northridge as a co-captain in 2011. He finished the year with three assists and three points and also had eight shots, two of which were on goal. His assist against then-No. 7 UCLA (10/22) gave the Matadors their second goal and helped them come from behind to defeat the Bruins on the road for the first time in school history. For his efforts in 2011, Franco was named an All-Big West Honorable Mention.

2010

Franco competed in all 19 games for the Matadors, his second season accomplishing that feat. He served as a team captain for Cal State Northridge in 2010 and had one assist on the year, a throw-in that led to Daniel Yoon's equalizer at then-No. 7 ranked UC Irvine, a game that the Matadors would go on to win.

2009

Franco competed in all 20 games, one of five student-athletes to accomplish the feat and the only first-year player to see action in every game. He scored his first career goal at UC Riverside (9/30) and took a total of seven shots, four of which were on-goal.

2008

Franco redshirted the 2008 season.

ST. FRANCIS HIGH SCHOOL

Franco was a two year starter for the Golden Knights and head coach Glen Apples. He was a member of 2007 squad that finished season 25-2-1 and he was named to 2007 All-CIF Second Team. Franco earned Pasadena Star News First Team honors following both seasons with St. Francis and also was named to First Team All-Mission League and All-San Gabriel Valley Team following both seasons.
