Subscribe now An opportunity to start his own football program and a glistening, on-campus stadium led Jeff Bailey more than a decade ago to leave the school that he guided to back-to-back CIF-SS championships. Bailey, 53, took the challenge of building Yorba Linda, and the results have been impressive ever since. Last week, the Mustangs won their second section title under Bailey, defeating host Upland 9-6 in the Division 3 championship. They improved to 14-0, the best record in California this fall and a symbolic feat for the coach.
