Tennessee Tech names Bailey Fisher starting QB on eve of opener
It’s been just over eight months since Bailey Fisher took his last snap for the Rabun County Wildcats in the 2017 State Title game. That last snap resulted in his final touchdown pass of his career.
Fisher graduated early from Rabun to get to Tennessee Tech’s campus and get some reps with his new team. The hard work paid off.
The Rabun County beloved star product showed quickly why he was made for the position, making huge strides early after arriving in January.
“Bailey was an excellent high school player and played in an excellent program,” head coach Dewayne Alexander said via Tennessee Tech’s athletic website. “We actually had him in January as he graduated high school in December, so he went through winter workouts, spring practice and was here this summer and had a very good fall camp. He will play as the starter and will get the majority of the snaps.”
TTU expects the backup to play as well, but Fisher will be the starter.
He was an astounding 36-4 overall as a starter in high school, with three of those losses coming in the state quarterfinals or deeper. He led the Cats to three consecutive region titles as a starter and four overall in a row, and finished his career with 113 TD passes, fourth most all-time in state history, and 9,383 yards, sixth most all-time. He tallied 170 career touchdowns (113 passing, 57 rushing), while rushing for 3,075 yards, giving him a total of 12,458 total yards of offense.
