The Hayden football team sent three of its athletes from the 2022 season to Gilpin County Football Stadium in Black Hawk for the All-State eight-man football game on Friday. 

Seniors Wesley Gioia, Brayden Dale and Kodi Ingols all represented Hayden at the game, and they helped propel the Blue Stars team to an 18-10 victory. 

Ingols, listed as a wide receiver and linebacker, had a successful game and received the honor of Most Valuable Player.

While it was his last time suiting up as a Tiger, this fall Ingols will attend Fort Lewis College and play for the Skyhawks football team at the Division II level in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
