Jaiden Gray is the youngest player to ever move up in the Niskayuna Warriors program and play tackle football.  At the young age of 6, he is currently playing with the 8/9 age group knowing he must be one of the most competitive players on the field.  Having the most catches on the team, Jaiden is also a force as an edge rusher as he is big for his age allowing him to effectively block out opposing players.  Having the most catches on his team comes from Jaiden’s skilled hands and having the ability to catch most passes thrown to him.  One aspect of his game Jaiden’s working on is his speed.  Being the youngest in the age group, he has been working hard to improve his speed and agility on the gridiron to keep up with those older than him.  To train, Jaiden does plenty of push ups, sit ups, pull ups, and box jumps every single day.  He plays in multiple sports to keep his athleticism at its peak and participated in multiple camps this past summer throughout the Northeast.  Although they play different positions, Jaiden really looks up to Saquon Barkley as he met him at one camp in New Jersey, and he is inspired by Barkley’s work ethic to be the best player at his position.  The sport of football plays a major role in his life as there are not many kids Jaiden’s age that look forward to a marathon of NFL football on Sunday like he does.  As he continues to be the youngest player on each one of his teams, Jaiden has a long road of growth ahead of him, and playing with older athletes will allow him to learn better habits and grow as a football player.
