Chenango Forks' Tyler Hayes is signing to Division II Edinboro University to play football.

Hayes is a lineman and the new Fighting Scot said he picked EU because of its coaches and run style while adding he'll miss his Forks teammates and coaches.

"I've been wanting to do this my whole life, just an opportunity like this to be able to play at the next level, it means the world," Hayes said. "The energy that all the coaches bring every single day, it's amazing like you'd have to see it for yourself but another thing is the run style, it's a more powerful ball like Forks so that'll fit me well."

Hayes was a three-year starter at Forks and won the NYS Title this past fall season.
