V.E.S. lost some great talent from last year's state title team, but Jones loves the effort and attitude he's seen from this year's bunch. Quickness and conditioning are two team strengths. Jones is hoping the conditioning and hard work in the preseason will pay off and that the Bishops can steer clear of a lot of injuries. Jones says if the team will concentrate on getting better each day, the wins, losses and state championships will take care of themselves. V.E.S. opens on the road Aug. 30 against the team it defeated in last year's state title game, North Cross.
