News in Brief: State Assembly to recognize athletes

At 9 a.m. today, the California State Assembly will meet to celebrate the Super Bowl victory of two local football players.

Desmond Bishop of Fairfield, Calif. and Jarrett Bush of Vacaville, Calif. both play for the Green Bay Packers. Rep. Mariko Yamada (D-Davis) will take the floor to honor the men, who she calls “A source of great pride to the people of California …”

“… Not just for their outstanding play on the field, but for their off-the-field activism and commitment to their communities,” Yamada said in a press release. Both Bishop and Bush organize football camps at their old high schools.
