  • Brigman brings the hits

    INDIAN LAND –  If it seems Indian Land High School senior offensive guard Dakota Brigman embraces his role as a Warriors’ offensive lineman, he does.
    Brigman does enjoy his role in the trenches, but he’s known that for a while.
    “Growing up, there are those glamour positions in football, like quarterback, or running back or wide receiver,” he said.
    Don’t even go there with Brigman, a 6-1, 245-pound IL line veteran.
    Since his early days of organized football, he’s always been on the line.
