Written by: on Wednesday, April 15th, 2020


Not every player is cut out to be a quarterback, and thanks to a fun post on twitter by Pine-Richland head coach Eric Kasperowicz, we all now know incoming senior lineman Harrison Hayes is one of those players. Kasperowicz was replying to the following tweet:

The 6-4, 265 pound offensive linemen ended a recruitment that ended with over 20 D1 offers. Liberty was one of the first programs to extend an offer to the talented lineman.  We caught up with Harrison to ask him about his choice:

PFN: How long have you played football?

Harrison I started when I was 8 years old in 2nd grade.

PFN: Why did you choose to commit to the Flames?

Harrison It was where my heart was telling me that I needed to be. Absolutely loved the atmosphere and the coaches.

PFN: Why commit early?

Harrison It’s pretty rare when a player knows exactly where they want to play and I just knew it was the place that I wanted to spend my college years.

PFN: Who was your biggest influence at Liberty, who recruited you?

Harrison They’re offensive line coach, Coach Gregg, and his graduate assistant, Coach Trey Caso, spent a lot of time with me and cared for me as a player and a person. They were my biggest influences in the recruiting process.

PFN: What are they getting in player like you?

Harrison They’re getting a player who will work hard in the classroom, weight room, and on the field to earn his spot on the team.

PFN: What was the recruiting process like for you?

Harrison The recruiting process was pretty overwhelming at times but definitely was an interesting time in my life.

PFN: What position were you recruited for?

Harrison I was recruited to play Offensive Line.

PFN: Do you know what you’d like to study?

Harrison I have not decided yet but I’m leaning towards business.

PFN: What role did your parents play in your decision?

Harrison My parents didn’t pressure me to commit or anything like that, they were with me with every decision I made and supported me through it all.

PFN: What do you think is the most exciting thing about the Liberty program?

Harrison The fact that Liberty is an up and coming program that just won their first bowl game is definitely exciting.

PFN: Tell everyone out there in Flame Land something they’d never know about you until you told them:

Harrison I’m not too shabby on the guitar.

PFN: Who is the person who most influenced you in your football career?

Harrison God gave me the gift and put it in my heart to play, but Coach Sasson,Pine-Richland’s offensive line coach, believed in me and wanted the best for me from the start. He told my 160 pound freshman year self that if I work hard and gain the necessary weight, then I have an opportunity to play college ball. He has taught me how to play the game as well as helped me become a better man off the field.

PFN: What is it you’d like all your high school teammates and fans to know about your decision that you might have a hard time saying in person?

Harrison I don’t have anything that I couldn’t say in person, but I love all of them and I’d like to thank them for helping me get here.

PFN: Did the current situation with COVID19 and the possibility of camps not happening affect your decision?

Harrison Not at all.

Just a huge thanks to my Family, Friends, and high school coaches.
