Bailey Turning Heads

2013 Bolingbrook HS (Ill.) QB Aaron Bailey already has a handful of offers, and is well on his way to more. He talked to after leading his team to a blowout victory Friday.

Bolingbrook HS (Ill.) 2013 QB Aaron Bailey is turning heads everywhere he goes.

"I have offers from Northwestern, Colorado State, Minnesota, Purdue, Iowa, and Florida," Bailey said. "It's truly a blessing."

Bailey has been offered primarily as a quarterback, but can play receiver as well.

"I would call myself a duel threat quarterback," Bailey said. "Kind of like a Michael Vick, I like the way he plays a lot. You see a lot of people playing like that, like Cam Newton and Terrelle Pryor."

He continued, "I feel great being a duel threat quarterback, you don't know if I am going to keep the ball or throw the ball."

And this year, Bailey has gotten bigger and stronger – and it's showing in his game.

"I just keep going out there and throwing the ball," Bailey said. "And my arm feels way stronger than last year."

The 6-foot-2, 200 pound signal caller's arm strength not only comes from football – he excels on the baseball diamond too.

"You finish baseball in June and you start football in June so my arm is 100 percent all year," Bailey said.

And Bailey knows baseball is helping him succeed under center.

"It helps me out a lot because I play outfield because it's the same throwing motion as quarterback," Bailey said. "I play center and left field so it's the same throwing motion all year long."

His arm strength and talent has lead Bolingbrook High School to a 3-0 record on the season.

"We are stacked on offense and defense," Bailey said. "We have an overall great team this year, there are not many holes you can find this year."
