Class of


One of the top offensive linemen in the University of Delaware’s football history, Hayman led the Blue Hens to three consecutive Lambert Cup titles, three straight Boardwalk Bowl wins, and two
straight Middle Atlantic Conference championships 1968-70. A Newark, Delaware native and graduate of Newark High School, Hayman was a consensus first team All-American at offensive guard at Delaware
in 1970 and was a two-time All-Middle Atlantic Conference selection. He played an integral role in leading Delaware’s vaunted Wing-T offense to the NCAA Division II team total offense title in 1968
and national rushing titles in 1968 and 1970. He was a sixth round pick in the 1971 National Football League draft and went on to play six seasons with the Houston Oilers, opening holes for All-Pro
running back and Hall of Fame selection Earl Campbell. The Oilers played in two AFC championship games during his career. Hayman was a member of the all-time University of Delaware football team
selected in 1989, and served as head football coach at NCAA I-AA Prairie View A&M in 1983-86.
