Bailey Zappe, age 23, takes home a salary of $700,000 and has a six-digit net worth of $500,000. The hard work Bailey put up during his college days certainly proved to be fruitful.

Though the Patriots were defeated last night by the Packers, it was a night to remember for Bailey, who made his debut in the NFL.

The 23-year-old made his debut for the Boston-based team last night, as Brian Hoyer came off the field injured.

The third-string quarterback of the Patriots was behind Hoyer and Jones all season during the training camp, and last night he was suddenly handed his debut.

Zappe made a sensational 25-yard action pass to DeVante Parker that went for a touchdown and, for a while, even gave the Patriots a 17-14 lead.

With a boost in confidence, Bailey will now hope to feature in the upcoming games for the New England Patriots and soon will want to be the permanent quarterback for the team.

Who Are Bailey Zappe Parents? Meet Father Michael Zappe And Mother Sammie Zappe

Bailey Zappe was born to parents Michael Zappe and Sammie Zappe in 1999. Born and raised in Victoria, Texas, Bailey Zappe grew up alongside his brother Trent Zappe.

Michael Zappe was a proud father last night as his son produced a fine game against Green Bay Packers, and despite his son's herculean effort Patriots couldn't win the game. 

In 2018, when his son returned from a frustrating season, Michael was by his side, telling him that not all was over. And it certainly wasn't.

Bailey became one of the most prolific passers in college football history and had become 2021s best college story.

When Bailey started to get the attention he thoroughly deserved, Michael said he almost burst into tears seeing his son get the recognition he deserved.

Sammie Zappe, the mother of Bailey Zappe, has kept a low profile in the media, but she is invested in her son's journey from a nobody to a superstar.

Sammie, on her Twitter page, is seen supporting her son by retweeting the stories related to his rise in the first team of Patriots, and one day, maybe her son can follow in the footsteps of the former quarterback of Patriots, Tom Brady.

Bailey Zappe Family

Bailey Zappe comes from a football-loving family. The family stuck beside him when he was going through a dark time. 

Many families do not support their children after a frustrating season as Bailey had. The young quarterback didn't have any offers after his senior season ended, and that is when Houston Baptist coach Shealy called.

His family never doubted his talent. And the belief and hard work paid off as Western Kentucky came calling for his signature, though he had to wait a few years.

In Western Kentucky, Zappe averaged 427 passing yards and 4.3 touchdowns per game. And 2022 was the most emotional moment for the family. 

In the video, captured by NFL films, Bailey and his family burst into tears as he gets a call from the general manager of the Patriots, Bill Belichick. 

His parents, little brother and manager are all emotional as Bailey received the life-changing news. 

Bailey is currently in a relationship with Hannah Lewis, and recently the young couple celebrated their fifth anniversary. 

Bailey Zappe Salary And Net Worth

Bailey Zappe earns a salary of $705,000 and has a net worth of $500,000, as per the outlet Spotrac.

The 23-year-old signed a contract worth $4,307,072 with the Patriots earlier this year after he was the fourth-round pick for the Greater Boston-based team.

The youngster, though had a slow start to his career, is now picking up steam in his later years, and now with Brian Hoyer injured, he would like to make an impression to be the starring player in the first-team lineup.

Born and raised in Texas, Bailey became a household name in Western Kentucky. The 6ft tall quarterback of the Patriots had surpassed records held by Anthony Gordon and BJ Symons during his time at Kentucky, where his style of play would often be called an Air Raid.

Before last night, Zappe was the third-string quarterback of the Patriots, and overnight, his name is now on the lips of every sports commentator vouching for him to start another game for the Patriots.

Who Is Bailey Zappe Brother? Meet Trent Zappe

Bailey Zappe has a younger brother in Trent Zappe. And the younger brother seems to be following in his older brother's footsteps and is a freshman at Western Kentucky University.

Unlike his brother, Trent is a linebacker, stands 6 ft tall and weighs 215 pounds. The younger Zappe still has a long way to go before he joins his brother in the NFL stages.

Trent is yet to make noise with his performance at the college level, and unlike some youngsters, isn't the biggest name in the game.

But he, like his brother, could be a late bloomer. Only time will tell whether Trent will ever get a chance to be drafted as an NFL player or whether he will stay in the shadows of his older brother.
