SOUTH PLAINFIELD—For followers watching, it’s blink-eye quick.
Typically, Myles Bailey seems like he’s bottled up, however earlier than you already know it, the North Brunswick tailback rips off a long term with everybody chasing him.
Someway, a way.
Simply don’t anticipate the sophomore himself, although, to really feel like he’s in hyper velocity-mode.
“Every thing goes tremendous sluggish,” he stated. “Every part’s sluggish. Like coach (Pushaun) Brown advised me, he stated whenever you begin operating it, you begin feeling it, issues get slower and it’s landing after landing.”
Bailey and the Raiders continued their resurgent season with a 28-10 win over South Plainfield in Thursday’s Larger Middlesex Convention White Division recreation. Bailey unofficially rushed for 205 yards on 15 carries.
Last fall, North Brunswick finished 1-9, but played competitively and had close loses. Against power South Brunswick on Thanksgiving, the Raiders lost 19-0 but showed sustained drives and glimpses of a potential turnaround this fall.

On the next drive, however, Bailey scored on a deflating 55-yard run for a 28-10 lead with 1:20 remaining in the third quarter. This season, the 5-foot-10, 180-pounder added a spin move that helps him to elude tacklers after working with Brown, the offensive coordinator and former North Brunswick star.
It’s just another tool in his repertoire.
“He’s got it all,” Cipot said. “He can outrun you. He can run you over. He can spin. He’s like the total package running back.”

Bailey said he’s looking for the outside zone and he’s “got my tackle blocking for me and all that. I got my brothers that I trust to block for me.”
Cipot added that Bailey is a great student and someone “that you love to coach.” Oh, he’s as hungry as ever.
“Here’s the thing, he’s got a natural talent but the hard work that…
