"They used to be one of the best teams out there," said Jovon Hayes. "Their coaches tell me that they are building back towards that. I have met some of their coaches and they seem like a good staff."
Coach Hagan has been after him for the Buffs. "He has just written and told me to think about them and that they are building towards a national title."
As a junior, he had 100 pancake blocks and did not allow a sack. On defense, he saw spot-duty at defensive tackle and recorded 22 tackles, 20 of which were for losses. He also had one sack. Hayes was named first team all-league, all-conference and all-state underclass.
"I work hard and I want to be one of the best. I am a very competitive person."
He carries a 2.4 core GPA and will be taking both the ACT and SAT very soon. Hayes would like to major in Business or Finance.
