Summary: The Bishops have a tough act to follow this year after winning their first state championship last year in nearly 50 years. But V.E.S. has good talent across the board, including standout running back Ronnie Stringfield, who Coach Jennings calls the best running back in the state in Div. 3. Defensive end and offensive lineman Michael Biesemier has already committed to JMU, he and the rest of the team are excited about the addition of some big players who will give the Bishops more power. Coach Jennings says the Bishops' running game will be its strength, he's hoping to bring the passing game along to help balance the V.E.S. attack.
