"She has really stepped up and always willing to take on roles necessary for her team and has throughout her high school seasons. We were very excited to get the news.

"Kaila has played some of her best defense in the post season and really just leads well on the field," she added. "She is constantly talking, communicating and working for her team. It is affirmation for a player to be recognized for what they bring to the team by someone other than their own coaches. So great to see how others see the things in her I have always known was there. We had so many players recognized this year and just makes me so proud of them and they are all so deserving."
