“Jacob is ultra-competitive,” MacDonald said. “He thought he could help the soccer team. Golf is his main focus. That’s what he’ll do in college. But he gets to play soccer on top of that. It’ll be a special memory for him.”

The Bulldog golf team has a strong senior class that includes Bishop, Kansas State signee Trent Evans and Oklahoma Christian signee Ty Tamura.

MacDonald has high hopes for his team this season, but he isn’t worried about soccer creating a distraction for Bishop.

“He is truly a product of dedication and hard work to become the best at his craft,” the coach said. “Over the course of last season and last summer, he really exploded as a player. He wants to be in that leadership role for our team. He’s incredibly focused and wants to do well.”
