  • Football changed Rizzo

    INDIAN LAND If Indian Land High School senior defensive tackle Roberto Rizzo doesn’t make another tackle this season, Warriors’ head coach Mike Mayer won’t be overly disappointed.

    He hopes Rizzo, a first-year starter, hasn’t made his last hit in the trenches, but given Rizzo’s recent past, anything he achieves this season is royal blue and gold icing on the cake.

    Just after Thanksgiving last year, Rizzo made a decision to make a full commitment to reach his potential on and off the football field.
