Teams for whom Peyton Bailey plays just seem to do better.
The Fairfield High football team was 5-5 his senior year in 2015, when he made the All-Solano County Athletic Conference first team on defense, second team on offense. The Falcons have gone 2-26 since.
Sacramento City College was 6-5 in 2016 and 8-3 in 2017 in his two years with the Panthers, 3-7 the year before he got there, 4-5 this season.
Prior to 2018, Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, Iowa, had never had a winning season in football since beginning play in 2004. Its high-water mark was 5-6 in 2006, its longest winning streak two games – attained four times.
