Last week Haywood, who is starting at both tight end and defensive end, caught a 15-yard touchdown pass and returned a fumble 76 yards in a convincing win over Edmond Santa Fe.
"Yes, when I picked it up running for the ball I was just taking off for the end zone," said Haywood of the fumble return. "I was in the open in a hurry. It was a fun play."
On offense Haywood has eight receptions for close to 200 yards and three touchdowns. He is also running at quarterback in the Southmoore version of the "wildcat." He has three rushing touchdowns in that scheme.
"I like doing it and we have a couple of plays in the wildcat that we haven't even thrown out yet," added Haywood.
On defense he has close to 40 tackles on the season with three sacks and two interceptions. He also has two fumble recoveries and two fumbles forced.
The 6-4, 250-pounder has a 4.7 in the forty. There is no doubt that he can play Division I college football. He has offers from Baylor, Arizona, and Colorado State. Kansas, Missouri, and recently Oklahoma State and Tulsa have jumped in there.
"I just got letters and heard from Oklahoma State and Tulsa," said Haywood. "I'm going to the Oklahoma State game (homecoming vs. Missouri) this weekend. I have an official visit to Arizona on Nov. 7. I am also going to a Kansas game this month."
Right now, Haywood doesn't seem to have any favorites but he is enjoying getting the recognition. It's not unrealistic to think that Haywood is moving into being one of the top 10 players in the class of 2010 among Oklahoma high school prospects.
