Jaden Brill is 6’2 and can play either guard spot. He attends University Christian High School and will graduate in 2022. He first witnessed the sport at a young age while watching his uncle play. After getting exposed to the game at such a young age, he started to acquire a love for the game. This led him to start playing by the time he was 4.
Jaden loves his family and realizes how much they put into his basketball career to help him be successful. The guard explains how, “he loves seeing the joy on their faces when I play. It motivates me to work hard so I can make them proud.” Brill is not just looking to succeed for himself but he feels a sense of extra motivation to make his family proud along the way.
One challenge Jaden faced on the court was the first time he experienced failure. This taught him “that nothing in life is easy. You have to work hard and never give up.” Failure is important for everyone to deal with. It shows you how bad that feeling is and pushes you even harder to never have to experience that again. Failure helped push Jaden to become more dedicated to his craft. It showed him that there are other people working just as hard and that he needs to push himself even harder to achieve his dreams.
Basketball has been a great way to deal with these challenges. This work ethic he developed playing the game, carries over to other aspects of his life. He has applied this attitude to his schoolwork to become a more well rounded student and individual. This has helped him become more successful both on and off the court.
Leadership and versatility as a scorer are two traits Jaden brings to the table. His previously mentioned work ethic allows him to lead by example by showing others how to approach the game and ways to improve. This helps set the tone for the rest of his teammates. He has the ability to score from anywhere on the court; he can attack from the perimeter or post you up down low. This helps keep the defense on their toes and create mismatches, forcing opposing teams to change their game plan.
Moving forward in his basketball career, he would like to play at the Division 1 level. After that, he would like to be afforded the opportunity to play professionally, either in the NBA or overseas. As long as he gets a shot, he wants to make the most of it. Outside of basketball, he would like to be successful in the classroom, as well, and pursue a degree in sports communication. Hopefully he gets his chance to shine.
