Roots have re-signed Taylor Bailey ahead of the 2021 USL Championship season. Bailey was the starting keeper for Roots 2020 NISA season last spring, starting both games before the Covid-19 Pandemic ended the season early.
“Taylor has earned this spot fighting back from injury and showing the work ethic of someone who never quits,” said Roots Head Coach Dario Pot. “Taylor showed up all spring, kept his head down and worked tremendously hard to earn his spot with us. Taylor is an example we want at Roots that hard work and dedication gets rewarded.”
Taylor was born and raised in Greenville, Tennessee before starting his college career at Nova Southeastern University. After a short time in Florida, Bailey played for San Francisco Community College from 2017-2019 where he led the team as captain. During the college offseason, Bailey also featured locally for USL League Two side SF City FC.
Welcome back Taylor.
