Get To Know:

Kenneth Bishop, Philadelphia Flight owner

Many of us know that the Philadelphia Flight is the most recent expansion organization to join the Premier Basketball League's East Division. However, not many PBL fans know about the Flight's owner, Kenneth Bishop, or why he even started this team. For example, the former high school defensive back and wide receiver attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania where he studied Computer Science. Want to learn more about the young Bishop, besides the fact that he believes he's the best Madden player? We did. So we decided to kick off the month of October with a fun Q&A with him.
