School: Gateway High School

2021-22 average: 16.5 points

Season highlights: Coach Ibn Shabazz lost several key contributors from a Gateway team that went 8-4 in the coronavirus-shortened 2021 season, bringing a new wave of players to the forefront. Among them was Bailey, who showed a penchant for reliable scoring and rebounding on a regular season, as the All-EMAC second team selection recorded a number of double-doubles during the campaign. Bailey is a first-time selection for the A-Town All-Star Game.

Bailey vs. Aurora teams: vs. Vista PEAK (5 points, 9 rebounds); vs. Rangeview (4 points, 3 rebounds)
