Iraq Serviceman Now A Football Player

January 30th, 2006 · No Comments

Timmy Bailey isnít your normal 21 year recruit to play college football. Out of high school Bailey wasnít really sought after and he decided to enlist in the National Guard and now he has returned from Iraq to play college football. Mississippi State offered him a scholarship before deployment and Sylvester Crooms kept the offer open.

Bailey knows how to relate to coaches and people better since being in Iraq and learning first hand what life is about. Bailey knows you donít get a lot of chances in life and you must take advantages of the chances as you never know when your time will come. Bailey is the kind of story that you cheer for. I will follow his career on the blog here next year and see how he progresses.
