country from the Class of 2005. Playing with older stars such as Callahan Bright, Darius Dewberry, and Justin Mincey has paid off for the receiver, and he
has not only held his own, he has excelled.

this year on his star receiver. Hazelton has caught 28 passes for 756 yards and 11
touchdowns as a senior, and he is the #1 ranked wide receiver in the country by

ball skills, but the most impressive aspect of his game may be his blocking
skills. He runs crisp and precise routes, separates well and is tough to bring
down once he catches the ball," according to Bob Lichtenfel of Scout.com.
