My name is Payton Hayes. I am a 2025 5’10 guard (still growing). Academically, I am in all honors/ AP classes with a perfect 4.250 grade point average. I am currently playing my second year on varsity for my high school team (Badger High School). My greatest asset as a player has got to be my defense. I am quick on my feet, and I am always the one to lock down the best player from the other team. This season I have worked hard to find my teammates and create more opportunities to score. (I am 3rd in conference for assists). I am good at handling the ball, I have lock down defense, and I have great court awareness. As a player I work as hard as possible all of the time and I am a very coachable athlete.
I am a three sport academic athlete. I play basketball, soccer, and volleyball. In my free time I enjoy reading, camping, hanging out with friends and family, and spending time outdoors. I also participate in choir and jazz band at school, and I sing and play the piano.
