2013 San Diego Prep Football Season Preview: Bishop's School

Bishop’s Knights
Location: La Jolla, CA
Founded: 1909
First Year of Football: 1983
School Colors: Maroon & Gold
Division: V
League: Coastal
Championships: League (7) Section (4) State (1)
Head Coach: Joel Allen (Fifth Season)
2012 Recap: 4-8 (1-4 Coastal, 5th)

Despite finishing the regular season 3-7, the Knights ended up in the Division V playoffs defeating Holtville 24-21 in the first round before falling to Francis Parker in the quarterfinals.

Early Outlook

With junior Bulla Graft and sophomore AJ Britanico carrying the rock, the Knights should continue to have the most explosive rushing attack in the Coastal League. But if the Knights are to get back in the Division V title picture, they will have to improve a defense that allowed an average of 32 points per game in the last two seasons.
