An injury ended his junior season. Now, Jaden Stanley is leading the charge for Evergreen boys basketball this spring.

Evergreen (Vancouver) boys basketball senior guard Jaden Stanley and head coach Brett Henry joined SBLive Washington’s 2021 basketball media day to talk about how they stayed focused during the long shutdown, the Plainsmen’s program momentum coming off of a 3A state tournament appearance in 2020 and watching a former Plainsmen standout Robert Franks make his NBA debut.

Stanley, a first team all-3A GSHL guard, missed Evergreen’s state run in 2020 with a broken wrist, and is determined to finish his high school career strong. The Plainsmen are 4-7 in the condensed season at the time of publication. This interview was conducted on May 6.
