Entering his freshman season and high school football career, Will Bailey was convinced he would be a wide receiver, and so were his teammates. River Valley coach Tim Eastlick had other ideas.

“We felt we had a fairly solid receiving corps in front of him, and we knew there was kind of a bubble where we didn’t necessarily have a ton of kids that wanted to play quarterback,” Eastlick said. “We felt he was a smart kid, that he could comprehend the offense and command the respect within the huddle.”

So Bailey moved under center.

“I was kind of surprised at first,” Bailey added.
