While the coronavirus has made things different around the state, Bishop Garrigan's Kellen Murphy is find ways to prepare for the upcoming football season.

Murphy, a Class of 2021 prospect, plans to stay active on both sides of the ball this coming year for the Golden Bears.

Bishop Garrigan scored another successful season in 2019, finishing 6-3 overall including three consecutive wins to conclude the campaign.

"I've been lifting five-to-six days a week," Murphy said. "We've also been working on speed, offense and defense three times a week with a few of my teammates at the local park."

Just like he plans to do this coming season, Murphy did a little bit of everything for Bishop Garrigan and legendary head coach Marty Wadle last year.

"Playing for a Class A school, I'll most likely have to play multiple positions on both sides of the ball," he said. "In college, I'd like to play receiver, but I'd play wherever the coaches think that I'd benefit the team the most."

He ran for 282 yards with a touchdown on 72 carries, averaging just under four yards per attempt. He also caught a pass and completed another on offense.
