Player Spotlight: Jamal Hailey C/O ’22 Tailback

Jamal Hailey is a standout junior tailback for Berrien Springs High School in Berrien Springs, Michigan.

The rising senior had a productive season for the Shamrocks this fall, despite the effects of Covid-19 only allowing him to play in seven games on the short season.

Despite the small amount of games, Hailey was able to put up big numbers, as he averaged a whopping 14.8 yards per carry on the year!

With those 14.8 yards per carry, Hailey finished the season with 587 yards rushing, in addition to 8 touchdowns on the year.

Standing at 5’11, 180 pounds, Hailey already has good size for a tailback, and he has time to add to that frame as well for the next level.

In the weight-room, Hailey dominates like he does opposing defenses, with his max squat of 385 pounds!

Hailey is a dual-sport athlete, as he is also a track guy, and he feels like that sport greatly compliments football for him.

“I feel like my track numbers speak for themselves,” Hailey said. “I am one of the top junior track-runners in all of the state of Michigan.”

Those words speak volumes, as Hailey has an unofficial forty time of 4.37, a true burner on the field!

Hailey states that he is able to bring some positives to the games, other than his obvious physical talents.

“Being a leader is important to me,” Hailey said. “I love to be a leader in every way possible for my team.”

Hailey currently holds a 2.96 GPA, but he is working to get that number even higher. While he has not gotten any offers, we feel like his speed and abilities will be on notice soon and the interest will then pickup for this dynamic player!
