Today's athlete is Mildred junior Bishop Harris, who has emerged like a lightning bolt as one of the best football players and most versatile athletes in the Golden Circle.

He was a Golden Circle Offensive Newcomer of the Year in football as a sophomore and was the GC Offensive Player of the Year as a junior after leading the GC in rushing and earning All-State honors at tailback.

Bishop rushed for more than 300 yards in just five games, averaging more than 12 yards a carry as a sophomore before he was sidelined with a foot injury.

He came back as a terror last fall and led Mildred's impressive running game along with QB Creed Baker. Bishop led the Golden Circle in rushing, gaining 2,134 yards while scoring 22 touchdowns. He had a memorable night against powerhouse Buffalo, running for 252 yards on 27 carries and scoring twice.

But there is so much more to Bishop, who was a key member of Mildred's basketball team as a starting guard for the Eagles, and a member of Mildred's track & field team that had its season canceled.
