The Bryan College [BC] athletic department sends their thoughts and prayers out to the family of Hayden Lavo. Lavo, a 2010 graduate and former soccer player, passed away in his sleep on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 19, at the age of 26. Dr. Sandy Zensen, who was Lavo’s head coach, stated, “Hayden was a wonderful young man; a man of great faith, Christlikeness, gentleness of heart, and integrity well beyond his years - suddenly called ‘home’ by our Heavenly Father. I remain thankful to God for permitting me to have crossed paths with that young man. I am richer for it, no doubt.”
Hayden married Callie Dirks prior to his senior year at Bryan. After his graduation, they lived in Texas before moving to Alaska just a few months ago.
