Hunter Hays, a Model High School senior center on offense and nose guard on defense was named the scoutSMART Student-Athlete of the Week by Georgia High School Football Daily this past week.

Hays is a standout student in the classroom as the Model Blue Devil team captain has a 4.0 Grade Point Average and scored a 30 on the ACT college entrance exam. 

On the gridiron, Hays is a contributor on both sides of the ball.  On offense, Hays has a 92 percent grade out average for the year at center and has 18 pancake blocks.  Hays has twenty-six tackles and three forced fumbles as the Blue Devils' nose guard on defense. 

Hays is an FCA Huddle Leader, chaplain of the Future Business Leaders of America, senior class officer and member of the National Honor Society. He spends one class period a day in a kindergarten classroom helping boys and girls learn how to read. 

According to an article in Georgia High School Football Dailey, Model head coach Gordon Powers sees Hays as a leader on and off of the field. "Hunter Hays has a tremendous passion for helping others and a keen sense to spot other students who may be struggling academically, emotionally, and/or socially." Powers said. "I have seen him during lunch sit and talk to students who are by themselves or invite them to sit at his table."
