When talking about some of the greatest basketball teams of all time there is always the one player that is glorified as the big enforcer. The 1995-98 Chicago Bulls dynasty had Dennis Rodman, the Golden State Warriors have Draymond Green and the Bray-Doyle Lady Donkeys have this week’s B-D Donkey Feed female senior spotlight J’Cee Edwards. Edwards may seem like a small sweet young lady off the court, but on the court Edwards has led the Lady Donkeys in fouls averaging 99.5 since her Freshman season with a grand total of 398. Not only has Edwards been active in basketball, she was also active in yearbook, FCA, Student Council, FCCLA, and was one of the four class Valedictorians. Edwards sat down to answer our questions.
