Coach Quotes
"Emily Naranjo is a hard nose competitor whose not going to back down. She has great length which helps her on both sides of the ball. Rebounds well & can be physical on defense; has very good touch from the midrange game, but can also knock down the triple. Her game should get consistently better each year!"
- H.S. Head Coach Coach Shawn West

"Emily has outstanding work ethic and very coachable. Emily is a versatile player that can play both inside and on the perimeter. Has the ability to attack the basket and finish. She has a knack for the ball and a force on the boards. Very nice jump shot and perimeter shooter. Solid defensive player and guards the post well. Emily continues to grow as a player and develop her skills on the court. Outstanding player and person. Great teammate."
- Scott Schwartz

“Emily is a multi-dimensional player. She has the skill set of a guard to bring the ball up the court, deliver passes to the post, use screens and drive to the basket. In addition, she can post up and be a high post player with great accuracy from 15’. She’s long, which she uses to her advantage both on the offensive and defensive ends. She understands the game and is one of the hardest workers I’ve ever had the privilege of coaching.”
