Ayden Hector

Project Manager, Artist, and Software Engineer in Yarrow Point, WA

Ayden Hector has performed well both in the classroom and on the football field. He plays football with the Colorado State Rams, enabling him to maintain and enjoy the enthusiasm for the game he first discovered as a child. Even though he only participated in 7 games as a Ram, he excelled as a defensive back and was named to the all-conference team.

He was one of the defense's undisputed leaders and stars in 2022. He made 24 tackles and three interceptions throughout the season. On October 7, 2022, he had one of his most outstanding performances of the season: eight tackles, an interception, and one interception return for a score. Hector is still eligible for Colorado State for three more years and anticipates another outstanding campaign in 2023 as he contributes to the team's development.

Ayden has excelled academically and in athletics but has always sought opportunities to give back to his community. He operated an initiative called B.Box while attending Eastside Catholic High School in Washington for all four years and distributed birthday boxes to adolescent shelters there each month. Ayden Hector still conducts monthly deliveries to the Colorado State University on-campus food bank as part of his ongoing B.Box delivery service.
