Hur­ri­canes’ Hayes On­tario’s top coach

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Hamil­ton Hur­ri­canes head coach Ja­son Hayes has been named the On­tario Foot­ball Al­liance Coach of the year. The OFA over­sees am­a­teur foot­ball in the province.

The Hur­ri­canes won the Teddy Mor­ris Tro­phy as On­tario Foot­ball Con­fer­ence cham­pi­ons last fall for the third time in the nine years that Hayes has been head coach. It was the fifth straight year, and sixth over­all, that Hayes’ Hur­ri­canes have reached the league fi­nal.

As he en­ters his 10th year at the helm, the Hur­ri­canes and the OFC have re­joined the Cana­dian Ju­nior Foot­ball League and are el­i­gi­ble to play for the na­tional ju­nior ti­tle. They last played in the fi­nal in 2011, when they lost the Cana­dian Bowl to Saska­toon at Ivor Wynne Sta­dium.

Hayes has recorded the most wins of any head coach in Hur­ri­canes his­tory. He is a for­mer Hur­ri­cane quar­ter­back and, in 1993, was named the CJFL Of­fen­sive Player of the Year.
