The focus of the Nathan Hayes Shootout was to honor Nathan Thomas Hayes’s memory and our Lord Jesus Christ.
“God wins tonight. We serve an awesome God. Cherie Hayes and I would like to thank everyone for a great day in the 1st annual Nathan Hayes Shootout. Nathan is smiling in Heaven tonight. We all have hope in Christ.” -Coach Steven Hayes
Nathan, the son of Steven and Cherie Hayes, was and still is a big part of Mount Dora Christian Academy’s basketball program. His life ended way too soon. Steven and Cherie have learned to go on living through their pain by using the Nathan Hayes Fund to help others. The fund provides money for college scholarships and mission work. During the Shootout, one player from each team was chosen to receive a $100 college scholarship for their character on the court.
Thank you to George Horsford and Kelly Wright for capturing the special moments of the day.
