Shevelle Hayes Wiki – Shevelle Hayes Biography

Shevelle Hayes is the wife of Geno Hayes.  Hayes was an American professional football player who was a linebacker in the National Football League (NFL). After playing college football for the Florida State Seminoles, he was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He also played for the Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars in the NFL.

In his true freshman season, Hayes played in all 13 games and was credited with 17 tackles, broke up one pass and had two quarterback hurries. While he played mostly on special teams, Hayes also saw time as a back-up for A. J. Nicholson at weakside linebacker. In a game at Clemson in November 2005, Hayes recorded a season-high three tackles and scored Florida State’s only touchdown of the game, recovering a blocked punt in the endzone. He also had three tackles in the Orange Bowl loss to Penn State.

With the graduation of Nicholson in 2006, Hayes replaced him at the weakside linebacker position, starting 10 of Florida State’s 13 games. He only missed three games (Maryland, Boston College, Virginia) because of a knee injury suffered in the Seminoles’ victory over Duke. He ranked fifth on the team in tackles with a career-high 59 stops despite missing three full games and most of the game against Duke when he suffered two sprained ligaments in his right knee while making a tackle in the first quarter. He also ranked third on the team with a career-high 12.0 tackles for minus yardage, behind Lawrence Timmons (18.0) and Everette Brown (13.5). In the Seminoles’ Emerald Bowl win against UCLA, Hayes had a career-high of 12 tackles.

In his junior year, Hayes took over a leadership role in the Seminoles linebacker corps, after the graduation of Timmons and Buster Davis. Starting a weakside linebacker, he ranked second on the team in tackles (80) behind Derek Nicholson (99), first in tackles-for-loss (17.5), and second in quarterback sacks (5.0) behind Everette Brown (6.5). He was a first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference pick.

Geno Hayes Cause of Death

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Florida State linebacker Geno Hayes has died after being diagnosed with liver disease two years ago and while awaiting a liver transplant. He was 33.

“We are deeply saddened to learn of Geno Hayes’ passing,” the Bucs said in a statement Tuesday. “During his time with the Buccaneers, Geno was a beloved teammate and often the first player to volunteer his time to our efforts in the community. He frequently visited schools and had a remarkable ability to connect with children. Losing him at such a young age is heartbreaking. Our thoughts are with his family.”

Hayes, whose health began deteriorating rapidly last month, told ESPN that he believed over-the-counter pain medicines he took while playing — Tylenol, Advil, and Aleve — and a family history caused his liver to fail. He told ESPN he took the non-prescription medications because he believed they were safer than shots of Toradol.

For most of the two years he was suffering, he didn’t disclose his condition to many people outside of his family and close circle of friends.

“I wanted more to know but didn’t want to be a burden,” said Hayes, who instead opted to go to therapy to cope with his condition. Toward the end of his life, he began to open up in hopes it could help others.

“I think maybe just to inspire a person going through something similar [who] needs that extra motivation,” Hayes told ESPN. “It may inspire someone to never give up.”

“My prayers and thoughts are with Geno Hayes’ family and loved ones after his untimely passing,” said a statement from New York Jets coach Robert Saleh, who coached Hayes while with the Jaguars as an assistant. “Having the opportunity to spend time with him, I saw Geno’s passion and love for not only football but for life itself. He was an amazing person who left a mark on everyone who had the pleasure of connecting with him.”

The Buccaneers paid tribute to him on Tuesday. “Geno was a beloved teammate and often the first player to volunteer his time to our efforts in the community,” the team said in a statement. “He frequently visited schools and had a remarkable ability to connect with children. Losing him at such as young age is heartbreaking.”
