Jaden Mickey, a native of Eastvale, California, began his football career at a very young age. When his father, Lamar Mickey, coached high school football, Jaden was right there during practices, taking in all that he could. Everyone could see that young Jaden had a competitive spirit. He played his football game when he was five years old. His parents put him in youth flag football with the Eastvale Mustangs where he played quarterback. Throughout his youth football experience, he transitioned from quarterback to multiple positions. It was during those years, after playing tackle football his third year in, that Jaden fell in love with defense. As a cornerback, Jaden was able to lock down receivers, quickly and efficiently. He played Freshman football at nationally ranked, Corona Centennial High School in Corona, California. Because of his talent, he was moved up to the varsity team by the head coach. As a true sophomore, Jaden earned a starting spot at the cornerback position on varsity. He started at the cornerback position for three consecutive years and served as captain his senior year. Using his leadership skills, Jaden was instrumental in helping propel the team to an 11-1 during the 2021 season. 


Jaden’s high school career earned him many accolades as well as 19 Division 1 scholarship offers. In March of 2021, he narrowed it down to his top four which included Oregon, Northwestern, Cal Berkeley and Notre Dame. Jaden committed to the University of Notre Dame on March 8, 2021. He is not only exceptional on the field, Jaden is exceptional in the classroom. He completed high school a semester early, and on December 16, 2021, with a 4.0 GPA, this scholar athlete graduated. He enrolled at Notre Dame in January 2022. 

Now, a sophomore, majoring in psychology at Notre Dame, Jaden has written a book geared toward young kids. The Win Isn't Aways On The Scoreboard is available wherever books are sold. During the offseason Jaden will be participating in book signings all over the country promoting his book and sharing his belief that education is the key to success.  For media inquires or to book Jaden for a book signing, contact his team here.
