Bishop Davenport had a breakout season in 2020, leading the Spring Lions to a district title and going three rounds deep in the postseason. The 6-foot-3 junior was an All-State honorable mention.

Davenport threw for 3,500 yards and had a TD:INT ratio of 36:3. Coach Trent Miller has to be pumped to have him back leading his huddle.

VYPE caught up with Davenport for The 2-Minute Drill feature, peppering him with some quick questions.
