Graduation claims some of the best players every year. When a great player moves on, it opens the door for another to step up and show their talents. But there can be some pressure when it comes to trying to replace a lot of production.

Here are some returning players in 4A who will have big shoes to fill next year:

Kaiden Abasolo, freshman, Mulvane:

Kaiden’s older brother, Trey Abasolo Trey Abasolo 6'1" | CG Mulvane | 2021 State KS , earned first-team 4A as a senior. His numbers will be impossible to replace by one man. Trey averaged 20.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.0 steals per game. It’s also unfair to expect a younger brother to try to live up to what an older brother did. But Kaiden showed a ton in his own right as a rookie. He stepped into the top-ranked Mulvane lineup and averaged 6.2 points and 2.6 boards in a supporting role.

Jake fritz Jake fritz 6'2" | SG Wamego High School | 2022 KS , junior, Wamego (pictured):

Tanner Hecht Tanner Hecht 6'5" | CG Wamego | 2021 State KS was a unique player in 4A – a 6-foot-5 leaper who could shoot the lights out. His flashy and highly-productive game will be greatly missed next season. But Fritz really came on in the second half of last season
