A Bucks County football player is hoping to bring his new team to victory in a major game being held this weekend. Drew Markol wrote about the local player in the Bucks County Courier Times.

Connor Bishop, an Archbishop Wood High School graduate and Army West Point offensive lineman, is hoping to lead his team to victory over the Navy this weekend. Bishop built his name as an amazing leader on the field while in high school. The promising athlete moved on to play at Army West Point in college, where there are leaders everywhere.

“We are fortunate to get class presidents and great students and great young men that come to school here,” said Army West Point head coach Jeff Monken. “And you look at a young man like Connor, who is one of our team captains, and that tells you he is a leader among leaders.”

Bishop will be able to show off his leadership skills in front of a home audience on Saturday when he makes his 31st start at center for the Black Knights in the 123rd game between the Army and the Navy.

“It’s just exciting and there is so much buildup to it,” said Bishop. “Hopefully, we’ll go out on the right note.”
