The All-Star game will be Friday at 3 p.m. at Jackson Preparatory School. Bailey will play for the “white jersey” team and wear his familiar number 51.

Bailey has played football for the Green Wave for eight  consecutive years, beginning with peewee football in 5th grade.  During his varsity years, he has played both sides of the ball, in various positions, even running the ball some this year and scoring a touchdown.

He will find out which position he will play in the All-Star game after the first day of practice.

He is the son of Phil and Sherry Bailey.
