NFL RB Sankey Returns Home

True to who Bishop Sankey is, the first thing he purchased after signing a rookie contract with the Tennessee Titans wasn’t anything for himself. The former Gonzaga Prep standout, a second-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft, bought his mother furniture. That didn’t surprise Bullpups coach Dave McKenna. “He’s just a humble young man,” McKenna said. “I’m proud to have coached him, but not because he’s playing in the NFL. I’m blessed to have a friendship with him that goes beyond football.” Sankey texted McKenna about two weeks ago, saying he wanted to come back to Spokane and do a meet-and-greet fundraiser for G-Prep’s football program. He flew in on Monday and the function was held Tuesday/Greg Lee, SR. More here.

Question: Do you plan to draft Sankey for your Fantasy Football team?
