I had the opportunity to get to know a player that college basketball fans need to know the name of for the next four years. Julien Franklin is a back to back Crestview MVP, state finalist, and regional champion from Villa Park, California. He also holds the record for Villa Park points in one game… WITH 52. He received 5 division one offers, and has chosen to continue his basketball career in the PAC 12 as an Oregon State Beaver.
My basketball career started at a very young age of 5, but I took football a lot more serious as a kid. I didn’t start taking basketball seriously until the 7th grade when I quit football. Everyday my brother and I would train with my dad and older players that are in highschool and college. I’d say this is what molded me into becoming an elite player.
