  • IL’s Jake Locklear signs to play at PC

    INDIAN LAND – Indian Land Warriors’ senior lineman Jake Locklear recalls attending a football camp nearly three years ago, which has made a recent impact.

    “We felt the game had a playoff atmosphere and we needed to have a complete game, four quarters of solid basketball,” ILHS coach Nate Smith said.

    It is hard to believe we are already through the first month of the 2018 General Assembly session. Our workload has steadily picked up as bills are beginning to make their way through the committee process and onto the floor, in addition to legislation not resolved from last year.
    I wanted to give a quick update on what we’re doing at the State House on some important issues:
