  • Loughry makes most of his return

    INDIAN LAND – Indian Land High School senior quarterback David Loughry has defied the odds this season.

    Loughry, a three-year starter for the Warriors, wasn’t a lock to be back under center for 2017.

    Loughry suffered a tough injury last season, breaking his femur, the thigh bone which is the longest and strongest bone in the body.

    Loughry broke the bone in the Warriors’ fifth game last season at Chesterfield, and his return to be back with the Warriors was 12 months.
