Ex-football great Johnny Bailey dies of pancreatic cancer

Fri 20th, August 2010

Kingsville, TX (Sports Network) - Johnny Bailey, a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, died Friday morning in Houston after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 43 years old.

Bailey played for Texas A&I University from 1986-89, rushing for 6,320 yards during his playing days at the Division II school. He became only the second running back to rush for more than 6,000 yards in a career. The other was Tony Dorsett of the University of Pittsburgh, who gained 6,082 on the ground in his four years.

The 5-foot-8, 190-pounder received the Harlon Hill Trophy, which goes to the NCAA Division II Player of the Year, for three consecutive years (1987-1989).

Bailey was selected by the Chicago Bears in the ninth round of the 1990 NFL Draft.

Used mostly as a punt/kick returner during his six-year pro career with the Bears, Cardinals and Rams, Bailey was a Pro Bowl selection in '93 as a member of the Cardinals.
