HOW ACQUIRED: Selected by FC Dallas with the 18th pick of the 2017 MLS SuperDraft. Originally signed an MLS contract on Jan. 12, 2017.
Boasting a strong first touch and good speed, Hayes is developing into a legitimate box-to-box threat in MLS. He had 10 starts and had one goal and one assist in 2018 and should compete for a regular starting spot in 2019.
COLLEGE: Played four years at Wake Forest, where he locked down a starting spot in his sophomore year. Played a total of 71 games for the Demon Deacons, registering 15 goals and 15 assists in his NCAA career. Named an NSCAA First Team All-American in 2016 as Wake Forest finished as runners-up in the College Cup.
