Hayes the Brave
9-year-old Hayes Purdy looks up at Maconaquah Braves senior forward Wyatt Hughes as they chat above the bench during the Junior Varsity game on December 9, 2016. Wyatt, as well as point guard Chandler Pitts have been very influential in Hayes' life. When Hayes wanted to quit doing his infusion treatments that were keeping him healthy, the two varsity basketball players motivated him to continue doing them. They see Hayes as their little brother and looks up to them as big brothers.
