Hayes, a linebacker, said he was speechless after he was drafted to the Ravens: "Baltimore's been my favorite team since I was a kid."

He was the Notre Dame team captain in 2020 and an All-ACC Honorable Mention. He was also a Freddie Solomon Community Spirit Award Winner, Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Finalist and Mayo Clinic Comeback Player of the Year Semifinalist.

He started the season as a defensive lineman and tallied two tackles and a quarterback hurry in a win versus Duke and continued to start games through the semifinals.

The four-year letterman and three-time Academic All-Big Ten appeared in 45 career games with four starting assignments: defensive tackle, one at h-back and two at fullback.

He carried the ball 37 times for 87 yards with the nine touchdowns and averaged a touchdown run every four carries. He was a two-time winner of the Toughest Player of the Year award.

Mason became the first Wolverine to score three touchdowns in the first half of a game since Denard Robinson (vs. SDSU, 2011) against Nebraska (2018).

Mason is looking forward to playing with Pat Ricard.
