College Career Highlight – by G.Granison


According to Pro Football Focus (PFF), providers of College Football and NFL Draft analysis,  2015 Pebblebrook graduate Hakeem Bailey was the highest graded CB for the Kansas vs West Virginia game.

Hakeem finished the game with 3 tackels, 2 solo and 1 assited, 1 interception helping West Virginia take the win 38-22.

Coach Doug Belk, Cornerbacks Coach at West Virginia, had this to say about Hakeem…

Hakeem is a smart guy and sometimes you don’t even have to coach him on mistakes,” Belk explained. “He will come to you and say ‘I did this wrong.’ He’s a lead-by-example guy,” Belk added. “He asks questions in the meetings but he’s not a vocal guy. Yet his work ethic is unmatched. He spends a lot of time with a couple of other guys in that room doing extra work, watching extra film and watching other people develop their games and that’s what we want them to do.”

In his interview below, Hakeem recalls his first interception of his college career, which came in the game against Kansas.
