Quotes from Brentwood coach Kayla Hubsch: "Jaden is an athlete that is an all-around player who can learn and play almost all positions on the court. She has been a strong part of our defense the past two years with her quick feet on defense and an eye to read the ball. Jaden has also played setter for our team and at any point in time we would feel comfortable having her play that position for our team. She is an athlete that is always asking question and trying to get better with every opportunity she gets."
