Catching up with Pioneers Freshman Jaiden Douthit

Catching up with Pioneers Freshman Jaiden Douthit

Jaiden Douthit is a highly touted freshman guard from Ryle County High School in Northern Kentucky. Douthit who won a high school state championship while she was at Ryle said "Winning a state championship is one of the best feelings I have ever felt." Adding in "Knowing that all the hard work was finally paying off, but most importantly I got to experience this with some of my closest friends." 

This is something that she hopes to bring to the table in her time here at Campbellsville University Harrodsburg, "I know what it takes to win a championship" Douthit said "It doesn't all happen in one day, the work, the preseason, all that matters and it takes time to build." 

Douthit who will be wearing number 24 for the Lady Pioneers this season has been wearing that number since the 6th grade. However, there isn't really a major reason behind the choice of the number other than as she simply says "I just really like the number." 

With the second semester coming up Douthit is excited for basketball to begin again, with a game against a division 1 Lipscomb coming up she says "I am just excited to be able to play." Adding in "I can't wait to get back on the court and really start the season." 

On the court Douthit does a lot of things as friends, family, and coaches would describe her as "Someone who is passionate, hardworking, and determined." She loves to bring that positive energy into the gym. And this translates to off the court as well in her degree as she is studying business management. Douthit said "Business management is a versatile degree that will set me up to be able to do different jobs." 

Outside of basketball and school Douthit is just like the rest of us. Douthit loves to watch movies and loves to critique them. However, one of her hobbies has been taking her talents to a new sport. Douthit said "Since May I have been trying out skateboarding with a group of friends." One day we may see her on ESPN for more than basketball and competing in the X-Games. Most importantly Douthit said "I want to be remembered as someone who gave it my all" From the court to the skate park and to the Community Douthit looks leave the mark of a champion not only in the community but in life.
