Huguenot has a long storied history, but has done predominantly well for itself through its existence.
Recently the Falcons went through a coaching change that watched Jared Taylor take over for Bryan Jennings. Taylor helped lead Huguenot to a 4-7 record and into the playoffs for just the third time in the last 10 seasons.
Needless to say, the Falcons were on the verge last season of accomplishing so much more than they were able to accomplish. Of its seven losses, three of them were by 12 points or less which begs the question; what can we expect this season?
Returning for his senior season will be wide receiver Kevin Gayles who really surprised the Central Region last year and is the most productive catalyst for the Falcons moving forward. Since starting at Huguenot in the ninth grade under its junior varsity program, all Gayles done is collect touchdown after touchdown for the Falcons shaping the program into a positive light.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in and around the region of Central Virginia. Continuing our countdown at number 5 is none other than senior prospect Huguenot starting wide receiver Kevin Gayles.

“I’m going to chase my dreams no matter what school I go to…..I don’t care what logo you have or what records you had in the past……I know what I’m capable of doing and what effect I can have on a program.” -Twitter excerpt, Kevin Gayles-
The major lesson I took from the motion picture “Ocean’s Eleven” is that even in your own hotel there’s always someone watching. I think of that when I watch Huguenot starting wide receiver Kevin Gayles, Jr.
Gayles is aware that he is being watched with a much more powerful microscope than in recent years. We also understand that the Huguenot product is the type of person that likes to make his own decisions without input from those that don’t have his best interest in mind. He asked to be put in a position to help change the outside perspective towards Huguenot and never complained once about his plate being too full.
Last season Gayles garnered All-Region and All-804 recognition as well as being one of the top wide receivers in the state of Virginia. He’s been able to pick up offers from Tennessee, Elon, Old Dominion, Air Force, Delaware State, and Campbell. Not only is Gayles a humble person on and off the football field, he has the hunger and drive to be the best person he can be for both his family and friends.
