    Congratulations to #12 Russell Thompson-bishop for being selected the Offensive Bloomfield Football Player of the Game.

    Russell is the leading receiver for the Warhawks this season but due to injuries he needed to step up at QB. On Friday Russell carried the ball 15 times for 250 yards and 2 tds. Thompson-Bishop also ran for 2 2point conversions and threw for another. The sophomore really did it all to help his team win.

    Congratulations to #12 Russell Thompson-bishop for being selected the Special Teams Bloomfield Football Player of the Game.

    The Syracuse bound Thompson-Bishop always plays well on Offense but many don't know his punting is elite status in CT. He finished 2nd last year but has started off with a bang already booting two balls for a 112 yards and pinned both inside 20. His average of 56 yards is quite impressive along with catching 4 for 66 yards. Russell was also a great blocker for a run game that totaled over 300 yards on the night.

    Congratulations to #12 Russell Thompson-bishop for being selected the Offensive Bloomfield Football Player of the Game.

    Syracuse bound Thompson-Bishop was a primary target for Rocky Hill to stop. He lead a tough receiving core with 7 catches for 80 yards. His two tds in huge situations are the reason he is going D1. On 4th and 25 Russell ran a post route while being hit before the ball arrived still caught it and capped a 90 yard drive to go ahead 42-35. That also was the last of 3 straight tds for the Warhawks after being down 35-20. RTB is also a tremendous blocker in the secondary helping Bloomfield rush for over 200 yards on the night.

    Russell was a consistent in the punt game getting off a 39 yard average in terrible conditions. Also had a bad snap and got his punt blocked, his instincts kicked in he scooped and ran it roughly 25 yards (8 from the line of scrimmage) giving the Warhawks a first down as they ran the clock out to tend the game.

    RTB as always produces on offense today he had 3 catches for 106 yards and 1 td, another catch setting up a score. The Syracuse commit also truly enjoys punting and pinning teams for his defense. Today he had 3,1 inside the 20 for a total of 125 yards and should be ranked tops in state for average but the Hawks don't punt enough to qualify.

    Congratulations to #12 Russell Thompson-bishop for being selected the Offensive Bloomfield Football Player of the Game.

    RTP was once again a factor in the passing game representing Lawson Jr's favorite target all season. He finished the game with 5 catches for 100 yards and a TD. He also was an extremely big blocker for a ground game that was up and down the field on RHAM Saturday afternoon. He also had 2 punts for a 39 yard average pinning the Sachems offense on their half of the field.

    Congratulations to #12 Russell Thompson-bishop for being selected the Overall Bloomfield Football Player of the Game.

    RTB as the Warhawk community refers to him had a fantastic evening saving his best game for last. The Syracuse commit snagged 7 balls for 186 yards with 3 tds. Basically every ball that Lawson Jr threw to him was caught and all for huge plays. Thompson-Bishop also once again played a huge role with his physical blocking helping Bloomfield to 400 yards rushing. A special young man who elevated his game to another level just in time for playoffs.
