It has been interesting in practice lately to see leadership rising at Cal’s practice sessions. Cal fans would love watching Desmond Bishop take charge. This guy understands that his team can’t falter again and he appears to be taking matters personally. This week, as the team readies for a game that figures to be a sure win, Bishop won’t let his teammates relax. He has kept the emotion running high. His voice booms through the stadium at times and it affects everyone. That’s great stuff from a guy who only has been around the program since last season (he is a junior college transfer). How many JC transfers would even attempt to have this kind of impact in terms of leadership? Bishop commands respect, and he gets it.
The bottom line is that any Cal fans who are worried about the team’s focus this week can relax.
