Hayward Hoping To Be Back Soon

Jaylin Hayward

Jaylin Hayward is battling back from a knee injury and he's hoping to be back in a few weeks for Tallahassee Godby.

It was a hard night for Tallahassee Godby senior Jaylin Hayward. This three-star recruit hurt his knee during the summer and he had to spend the evening watching from the sidelines, as they travel south to take on a very good Bradenton IMG Academy team. Godby lost 32-13.

”Coming out here today was pretty emotional for me,” Hayward said. “Seeing my teammates play and I can’t contribute, that’s very hard. It was rough. I want to be there and help them. I will just have to make the most out of whatever I get later on this season.”

Hayway, 5-foot-10, 177-pounds, is an exciting player in all areas of the game – offense, defense and special teams. He’s just one of those guys that doesn’t care about where he’s playing, as long as he’s playing.

”It’s an ACL/MCL injury and they are saying I could be back during week 5. So I may miss half the year,” Hayward said. “Many thought I would miss the entire season but I will be back that quickly. For me, I just want to get out there. I just want to play. Same deal with college. It doesn’t matter if I am a wide receiver or corner. I just want to help out my teammates.”

Virginia and Illinois were Hayward last two offers. After that, he’s unsure of what offers he still has on the table because of his injury.

”They are my most recent,” Hayward said. “I am not sure if those other offers fell off the tackle or not. I am not sure if there will be new teams or not. I am really not sure where things stand.”
