Nice highlights. Wonder what his 40 time is. At times he seemed sluggish and was caught from behind a bit. Good hands and ability to catch out of the backfield. Fits Jones offense I guess. I will have faith in the coaches and their ability to evaluate players and coach them up to their system.

GO VOLS!

I like that he is a downhill runner... doesn't do a lot of dancing and try to be something he is not. He gets the ball and goes north/south... something we have lacked for a few years.

Dayes was named the Broward County 8A-7A-6A Player of the Year last week, ahead of better-known names like Alex Collins and Stacey Coley. He finished the year with 253 carries for 1783 yards (7.0 ypc) & 25 TDs.

A strong, powerful runner who only seemed to get stronger as the season went on, Dayes proved he had the ability to carry the load for a run-heavy Cypress Bay team. The N.C. State commit ran for a game-high 170 yards and four touchdowns to help the Lightning finish as the state runner-up. “He’s a great human being who leads by example. He’s quiet with a 3.3 GPA in the classroom. I didn’t believe how much stronger and faster he got. He was at the best at the end of the year. He really took to the conditioning part. We run more than anybody, and right before the playoffs, he just won every sprint. He pushed himself. His change of direction, his explosiveness, he was just phenomenal,” said Lightning coach Mark Guandolo.
