We are saddened to report that Rayshon Franklin Jr. the star football player from West Feliciana High School died this morning. Franklin Jr. was just 17-years-old.

The investigation revealed that a 2007 Toyota Camry, driven by Franklin, was traveling eastbound on LA 78, west of LA 1. The Toyota exited the roadway to the right, entered a ditch, overturned, and then struck a tree. 

Franklin, who had his seatbelt on at the time of the crash, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The crash is still under investigation. If you know anything please let the Trooper’s Office know.

We wanted to share a highlight clip of Rayshon to remember him. This was a catch against Zachary High School.
