Get to know AJC Co-Defensive MVP Bree Hubbard

Mar. 29—This year's Co-Defensive MVP of the All-Johnson County Girls Basketball Team is Godley forward Bree Hubbard.

The junior helped Godley earn a district championship with an overall record of 26-9 (12-0 in district play) and reach the area round of the postseason. Hubbard posted season averages of 14.7 points per game, 8.9 rebounds per game, 2.0 assists per game and 1.7 steals per game.

You were impactful on both ends of the court and, defensively, you were a strong rebounder. Talk about how you take on physical play with great energy?

"I'm always going to play hard no matter what kind of game it is, whether it's the most important game in the world of my life or just another game. My mom has always told me to play hard and be aggressive. If there's a loose ball, you bet I'm gonna be on the floor to get it — I'm just a very aggressive player."

What would you say was the most rewarding part of the season and why?

"Even if we didn't get to where we wanted, I got to see all my teammates work, and we for sure left everything on the court. We've had the same team the past two years, and I've seen all of them grow as both players and people."

Talk about the tradition of Godley basketball and how eager you are to maintain that next season?

"One tradition we have is that Coach Chauveaux always breaks out every huddle we have by saying, 'Earn it.' I really believe in that because, if you don't work or try to earn things in life, those things won't be handed to you. We've won district and we've really had to earn it by working hard every single day regardless of the circumstances. We earned everything we got even if it meant staying late after practices or practicing on the weekends."
