Whether you’re a coach, fan, Old School patron of the game or analytics nerd, you have to be impressed with what Hayden Baronet is doing on the field and to the record books at Brady this fall.
In his third year as the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback — and only halfway through the regular season — Baronet has already amassed 1,436 yards in total offense and accounted for 18 touchdowns. Last week, in the Bulldogs’ 47-27 win over Christoval, he completed 18 of 29 passes for 231 yards and two TDs and rushed for 179 yards and an astonishing five touchdowns.
And that’s just taking into consideration what he is doing on offense. In the game against the Cougars, the senior also had 10 tackles, an interception, a pass breakup and a tackle for loss from his free safety position on defense.
Add all of that up, and you get … well, if your name is Hayden Baronet, you get the state’s “Built Ford Tough” Player of the Week honor in Class 3A, a weekly award bestowed on the top performer from each classification.
