Lining up for Week 1 of his senior campaign, Chaminade-Madonna’s three-star defensive lineman Allan Haye wreaked havoc on Champagnat Catholic’s offense all-night-long on Friday.
Recording 5 tackles, 1 sack and 1 pass deflection, Haye, who’s a Miami Hurricanes commit, headlined the Lions’ front five in their 27-14 win against the 2019 Class 2A state champs.
“I think I played really good,” he said. “We could’ve done better, a lot better. I think I should’ve dominated every single play.”
Haye, who said he’s now listed at 6-foot-1, 310 pounds, looks to use his final season of high school football to fill up the stat sheet.
“I’m tryna double my sacks,” he said. “I got 6 sacks [last season,] I got one today. I’m tryna really double it and get 12 or double-digits anywhere.”
In order to do so, Haye, who transferred to Chaminade-Madonna in 10th grade, knows it’s all about having to “get faster.”
“I can get back there, it’s just catching the quarterback. I got to work on my speed, work on my pass rush and stuff like that.”
As for his relationship with UM’s coaching staff, who see his playstyle similar to Hurricanes redshirt sophomore Jordan Miller, Haye says he keeps a healthy relationship with coaches Todd Stroud and Jake Swalley.
That bond has helped Haye remain firm on his commitment.
Still, that hasn’t stopped other programs from knocking on the door for the talented defensive tackle. One of those schools: UCF.
“If I was to go to any other school it would be probably UCF, but I’m locked in on Miami right now,” he said.
The gifted prospect now prepares to take on American Heritage next Friday, a squad that includes five-star athlete James Williams, who’s also a Hurricanes commit.
“I played [Heritage] one time in my old school, at Coconut Creek, and they smacked us. So, I’m tryna get at that.”
