The Little Caesars Player of the Week – Amahri Bailey
10 months ago Andrew Luberda 1
County Line Preps is pleased to have a sponsorship agreement with specific Little Caesars locations in Queen Creek and Coolidge.
Little Caesars, home of the Hot-‘N-Ready pizza, will sponsor the Player of the Week and Player of the Month awards as part of our agreement.
Each week, CountyLinePreps.com will announce the Player of the Week, accompanied by a Q&A with that week’s winner.
The Player of the Week will receive a gift certificate, redeemable for a two-liter bottle of soda, a pepperoni or cheese pizza, and an order of Crazy Bread, that will be honored at one of the two aforementioned Little Caesars locations.
Additionally, the Player of the Week automatically qualifies for the Player of the Month Award, which will be determined by a poll that will be posted on our County Line Preps Twitter account during the final week each month.
The Player of the Month will receive a plaque and a $25 Little Caesars gift card.
Now that we’ve provided details of both awards, we are pleased to announce this week’s Little Caesars Player of Week:
San Tan Foothills – Sophomore
Bailey rushed for 214 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries in the Sabercats’ 57 – 0 win against Veritas Prep last Friday in San Tan Valley.
Friday’s performance marked the third time the super sophomore eclipsed 200 yards in a game. He rushed for 255 yard and three touchdowns in the Cats’ season opener. He ran for more than 300 yards and four touchdowns two weeks ago at Antelope Valley.
It could be argued Bailey could’ve been a two or three-time Little Caesars Player of the Week by now, but there’s nothing like the first time.
CLP: Are you surprised that you are averaging nearly 200 yards per game rushing? Why or why not?
AB: I worked hard during the off season on my running game, but I am surprised that it has led me to nearly 200 yards a game.
CLP: What has accounted for your team’s improved performance this year so far, compared to a year ago?
AB: What accounted for my team’s improved performance this year would be the new coaching staff and their new ideas for us.
CLP: You’re only a sophomore, but what are your thoughts about playing football after you graduate?
AB: Even though I am only a sophomore, I always think about playing college football. I would love to have the opportunity to play college football.
CLP: What is your greatest athletic memory so far at San Tan Foothills?
AB: My greatest athletic memory at San Tan Foothills is starting (on) defense as a freshman.
CLP: What is your favorite sports movie and why?
AB: My favorite sports movie is The Sandlot. I like that movie because the little kids never stop playing the game they love.
CLP: Name on person you’d most like to meet and why?
AB: One person I would most like to meet is Marshawn Lynch. I’d like to meet him because I like the way he runs the football.
