Beyond the Spotlight w/ Jaden DeBeau

Jaden DeBeau is competing in his senior season at Freeland High School.

What is the best part about competing in your winter sport?

Keeps me in the indoors when it’s cold outside.

Who is your team’s biggest rival? Why?

Swan Valley no question. We always want to outwork and succeed more than each other.

What is your favorite part about completing in high school sports?

The competitiveness and memories that you make along the way.

What is your favorite sports movie?

The longest yard, has funny actors and just all around a good movie.

What has your sport taught you about teamwork?

Teamwork is everything when it comes to sports. One individual can’t do it all.

Where is the toughest place to play on the road during your winter sport?

Shepherd no doubt. We’ve always had trouble playing there

What song are you listening to before competing to get you ready?

Nothing specific. Whatever song I’m rocking with for that day.

There is a middle school student who wishers they were you right now…what advice would you give him/her about high school athletics?

Don’t take it for granted. It comes and goes so fast so just make it count and put the work in.
