A day after being named a consensus All-American, WVU defensive back Beanie Bishop is now focusing on his future. Bishop has accepted an invite to the Shrine Bowl.

This will now provide Bishop the opportunity to show off his skills at one of the premiere annual events leading up to the NFL Draft. The 2024 Shrine Bowl will take place in Frisco, Texas on Feb. 1. WVSN covered the 2023 Shrine Bowl in Las Vegas.

Bishop recorded 59 total tackles and four interceptions during the regular season, his best statistical numbers for one season in his college career. He transferred to WVU following one season in the Big Ten with Minnesota and four at Western Kentucky.

West Virginia head coach Neal Brown had this to say as part of the program’s press release with the news. “Beanie has had an outstanding season and is very deserving of Consensus All-America honors. Everyone associated with the Mountaineer football program is proud of him and what he has accomplished this year. He has been an excellent leader and great representative for Mountaineer Football, the University and the state.”

Bishop is WVU’s 13th consensus All-American, joining Ira Errett “Rat” Rodgers (1919), Bruce Bosley (1955), Darryl Talley (1982), Brian Jozwiak (1985), Mike Compton (1992), Todd Sauerbrun (1994), Aaron Beasley (1995), Canute Curtis (1996), Grant Wiley (2003), Dan Mozes (2006), Steve Slaton (2006) and Darius Stills (2020).
