"The win means everything," Hayes said following the game. "It shows what kind of heart we have. We could have easily just laid down and not played hard because we have two league losses and might not make the playoffs. The coaches got us going and we worked hard all week and got the win."
On the recruiting front, Hayes is flying well below the radar but has the talent to definitely play for someone.
"Right now Northern Arizona is the main one I'm talking with," Hayes said. "I'm talking a little with Utah and Colorado State too but not that much. In the summer, I heard NAU was close to maybe offering but nothing came out of it so we'll see what happens. I would love to get the chance to play in college so hopefully someone gives me that chance."
