Whether it was shooting virtual aliens, trying to keep up with an air hockey puck or shooting baskets, Hayden proved to be quite the competitor. Although he saved his real expertise for the claw machine. 15-year-old Hayden ended up with about one thousand plus tickets. Not bad for having a fun day at Incredible Pizza.
"It has more cool things to do. I like bowling, I like bumper cars. I like the bouncing and it has games," said Hayden.
He is also pretty good in school. Hayden is in 8th grade and says he chose to start playing the clarinet, "Because it's easy to use." His favorite subject in school is math.
When Hayden isn't at school he is with friends or playing basketball. "What do you like about basketball?" Keith asks. "It just helps get my energy out."
That energy also plays a part in what Hayden wants in a family. "Active and does stuff." said Hayden "Like what?" Keith responded. "Get out of the house and do stuff. Not be lazy setting around." Hayden would also prefer to have older siblings as well. "Because I don't like being around little kids because they can be annoying and i kind of get upset."
