Seven Hayfield Hawks gave it their all in the 2001 Super 44 football contest, held at the University of Maryland's Byrd Stadium. Although Virginia's offense struggled throughout the contest, stellar performances were turned in by a number players, in particular DB Jason Howard and DT Floyd Wright.  It seemed as if their names and numbers were called all evening long.  Playing safety on defense and involved on special teams, Howard turned in a tremendous performance, usually being the first player down the field to make the play on special teams.  Floyd Wright was nothing less than spectacular on the defensive line, displaying his ferocity against some of the best players from the state of Maryland.  Other very notable performances on defense were turned in by DE Ian Vincent and DB Terrance Jenkins.  The Booster Club wishes all of the Hawks which participated in this contest the best of luck in all future endeavors.  Hayfield Proudly presents its representatives to the 2001 Super 44 Game!!   Click here to view a special tribute!!

A tribute to Hawk Alumni Lost on 11 September 2001 

Our prayers and condolences go out to all families who have been affected directly and indirectly. .....who may have lost loved ones., friends,  and co-workers.   The world as we all know it has changed dramatically.....in a moment in time.   But....Americans will not fold to terrorism.....we will become stronger and more united than ever!!!!  Never take for granted what we have in this country....many are jealous of our freedom and our strength....our kindness and our faith...our work ethic and our perseverance.   We all need to stand strong and unwavering despite this very tragic event.  God Bless America....the greatest nation in the world!!!

David Laychak, Class of 1979








"David Laychak, 40, was a civilian Army budget analyst for the Pentagon, but around the house, he was the Harry Potter storyteller, the UNO card player, the consummate dad. When the family took their "weekend excursions," as they came to be known, to Monticello or the Civil War battlefields, David would make up stories in the car and lead sing-alongs of "God Bless America." extracted from the Washington Post

David graduated from Hayfield in 1979, was a member of the National Honor Society, and was the winner of the Hawk's Claw Award as the top male student/athlete (4 Letters in Varsity Football and Baseball).  David later played football at Brown University, earned  an MBA at Syracuse, and has worked civil service with the Army. 

To his wife Laurie,  and his children Zachary, 9 and Jennifer, 7 ....the prayers of the Hayfield community are with you.  We will never forget David's Sacrifice for our Country.

Former and Current Hawks Administration/Faculty That Made a difference in Hawks Sports


Former Hayfield Principal, Victor Lutz


James O. Mays, Hayfield's first Athletic Director (they are now called Activities Directors) was extremely instrumental in establishing many of the traditions still in existence at Hayfield. Jim recently passed away in Williamsburg.  It is a fitting tribute to the first AD in Hayfield's history to include him in Virtual Hawk Hall of Fame..  Thanks Jim, the Hawks will always remember what you did for us!! (Submitted by the Classes of 71 and 72)


     Bob Chuey was the Hayfield student activities director through  2002.  Prior to that, he served as the Hawks head varsity coach leading the Hawks to a northern region championship and numerous playoff appearances.  Integrity, loyalty, passion and most importantly, honesty are just some of the words that describe Mr. Chuey.  His patience in dealing with students, parents, coaches and the administration were his trademark.  His number one priority was the students of Hayfield Secondary.



Former Head Varsity Football Coach John Tompkins (1988-94); 2 district titles, 3 Northern Region finals, and one Northern Region Championship. Currently, Assistant AD.
