About QBR’s President

Dr. Laird Hayes is an educator and National Football League official. He wears the uniform number 125. Hayes is also the President of the Quarterback and Receiver Camp (QBR) in its 50th year of non-contact, football fundamentals training for youth players, grades 6 through 12. QBR schedules six summer camps held in California, New Jersey, Arkansas, Indiana and Georgia.

He graduated from San Marcos High School in Santa Barbara, California. Hayes earned his bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, New Jersey, in 1971 and was awarded a Master’s and Doctorate in Higher Education from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1976.

Hayes played on football, basketball and baseball teams in high school, which prepared him for an athletic performance at Princeton. He played on the freshman football team and four years as a catcher for the Princeton Tigers baseball team.

Laird Hayes - Super Bowl Catch

Hayes’ officiating career started with basketball, baseball, and football games in high school and community colleges. In 1983 he was elevated to the Pac-10 as a football official. This was followed with a 1995 appointment to the National Football League roster of officials and his designation as a side judge. During his career in the NFL, he has officiated in three Super Bowls: XXXVI in 2002, XXXVIII in 2004, and XLVI in 2012 (where he made a call which might be consider one of the greatest calls in super bowl history). He also officiated at the 2006 Pro Bowl.

For the 2011 NFL season, Hayes is a side judge on the officiating crew headed by referee Carl Cheffers. The other crew members are Undrey Wash (umpire), Kent Payne (head linesman), Tom Symonette (line judge), Jimmy Buchanan (field judge), and Todd Prukop (back judge). During the 2007 NFL season, Hayes was the SJ on the officiating crew headed by referee John Parry and officiated the NFC Divisional Playoff game between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys.
