Bishops look unstoppable against North Charleston
The Bishop England Battling Bishops absolutely blew out the North Charleston Cougars 52-8. The Bishops offensive line, led by center Blake Jeresaty, helped produce 361 yards rushing and 122 yards passing, both of which are season highs. The Bishops dominating game was in large part due to center and Wofford commit Blake Jeresaty. He is the unspoken reason for most of the yards the Bishops gained as he carried his blocks way down the field. In fact, after Jeresaty drew an unnecessary roughness call for carrying his block too long after the whistle, his Coach Cantey compared him to Carolina Panthers tackle Michael Oher. After the game, Jeresaty said, “It is amazing to be compared to such a great lineman. I just love finishing my blocks. My passion is football and I love taking kids down the field.” Coach Cantey after the game spoke about his center’s character, “Blake has been a leader for a while now. He’s a three year starter, playing at center, and center is the leader of the offensive line. He’s got to make calls. So, he’s been a huge part of our team for three years and it is a great accomplishment to get a full scholarship to Wofford College. Academically, athletically and all that combined. To put that whole package together is huge, and he deserves it. He’s a great kid and he works very hard and he does it the right way.” The numbers that Jeresaty and the rest of the line helped produce are staggering, 483 yards of total offense. Quarterback Leo Albano had his best statistical game this year, as he scrambled for 171 yards and passed for another 122. He also had two rushing and two passing touchdowns. Running back Jake Mock rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown and also caught a touchdown. The Bishops next game is at home against Academic Magnet on Friday. The Bishops look to remain undefeated in their region.
