Team: I.E Ducks
Thinking back to the 90’s era Charles Woodson became the only player to win the Heisman playing significant minutes on both sides of the ball. Right now today Adoree Jackson & Miles Jack are two names that come to mind as threats on both sides of the ball. Versatility & Athleticism are key traits in the top two way athletes the likes of Jackson & Jack both West Coast College athletes and big time Nfl Prospects. The Inland Empire better known as the I.E Ducks Youth Football program has dished out some extremely talented D-1 Prospects in the Los Angeles area.

Here is a little interesting tidbit on Jaden 12 sacks & 13 Touchdowns and 8 Tfl, if those numbers don’t impress you pop on the film. On the biggest stage Ayf National Championship game between I.E Ducks and the Central Va Hurricanes the stage was set for an Instant classic. Jaden star shined the brightest on the biggest stage, he made a huge catch to lead to one of his teams touchdowns as well as making key defensive stops. Jaden’s impact on offense & defense were instrumental in leading his team to be crowned Ayf National Champions. Other honors that Jaden have been blessed to be a part of is being named an Fbu All American and participating in the Fbu 8th grade game, where he racked up a sack & couple Qb Pressures from his Defensive End spot.

Defensive End/ Outside Linebacker
When coaches talk about passing the eyeball test, sometimes they mean looking a prospect in the eyes and seeing if they make eye contact. Then there's the other eye test, the one that can earn prospects offers before college coaches even see their film. At 6’3 200 pounds the I.E Ducks defensive end is one of those players who looks physically capable of stepping onto a High school campus and contributing right away. Jaden could consistently get better jumps and isn't an elite rusher in terms of pure speed, but is one of the top handful of prospects in Youth Football because he's strong enough to bulrush opponents, but can also flash a little rip move to take the edge, while making some motor plays as well. Since Jaden does have a high level of athleticism with a respectable 40 time, Jaden uses his at times to drop into coverage and impact underneath passing lanes, while he also has the motor to chase down plays far from the line of scrimmage.
Jaden a big player who makes himself a threat with body positioning, catch radius and strength. He’s a strong player coming off the line of scrimmage and uses his length well to keep defenders from jamming him. He’s comfortable lining up in multiple positions and can be swapped around to find a mismatch. His feet are quick and light for his frame, and he’ll surprise defenders with his short-area burst if he gets a safety or linebacker matchup. He can overpower cornerbacks at the line and at the catch point and uses his upper body well to box out for tough catches.
