Jakkar Bishop, a sophomore at Marietta, set the tone for the win with an opening, 33 yard kickoff return giving the Pioneers excellent field position.

Normally a Defensive Back, Bishop had five solo tackles and two assists on Saturday, bringing his six game season total to 25 solos, 15 assists, and 3 sacks.
