“I have three goals this season and they are, first, beat Le Grand, second, win all of our games, and three, get this team to sectionals. I want this group of seniors to end their careers with section rings,” Bailey said.

It hasn't always been smooth sailing for Bailey, however, as he left behind a life in the inner-city and Central Valley to seek an education—and fame on the Grizzly gridiron.
