She is younger and smaller than her teammates and opponents – but nothing is holding Jaden Newman back.
The 9-year-old is in fourth grade at Downey Christian School (Orlando, Fla.), and is playing on the school’s girls varsity basketball team.
Well, not just playing.
She’s dominating – averaging 14.8 points, 7.5 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 3.6 steals for the team.
You could say basketball runs in the Newman family. Julian Newman – Jaden’s older brother – started at point guard for his varsity team at just 11-years-old.
Thanks to Prep Rally for bringing this to our attention.
