“You have to believe you can do it. I think it’s just discipline, the little details of football…communication…If you’re not on top of your stuff, they’ll expose you.”
Roland “Champ” Bailey, Jr. is the Founder of Bailey Companies & Investments, Inc. While best known as a Pro Football Hall of Famer and one of the greatest cornerbacks to ever play football, Champ now spends his time as a founder, investor, speaker and endorser of companies.
During his playing days for the University of Georgia, Washington Redskins, and Denver Broncos, Champ built a stellar reputation as a diligent and detailed leader who modeled high-performance. He continues to take that same approach with his business interests. As a privately held company, “Team Bailey” is involved with numerous entities. Champ’s vision is to make a lasting impact in the community by creating sustainable jobs that change lives.
He still holds two NFL records with 203 career pass deflections and being selected to 12 Pro Bowls as a cornerback. He was tabbed for the NFL All-Decade Team of the 2000s and chosen to the Broncos 50th Anniversary Team. Champ was rewarded for his excellence by being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019.
In all, Bailey played in 215 career games with the Redskins (1999-2003) and the Broncos (2004-2013).
