The high-school basketball season has arrived, and Ascension Parish is hoping that it's another successful one.

With so many key starters from last season coming back, it should be another fun year on the hardwood.

Here is one of the 10 parish basketball players to watch this upcoming season:

K.J. Franklin (St. Amant)

St. Amant's K.J. Franklin will return as the most decorated boy's player in the parish. The explosive Gator guard has been starting ever since he was a freshman. He has made all-district in all three years he's worn a St. Amant uniform. Last season, he helped lead the Gators to their first playoff victory since 2009.
