    For the second straight week, Indian Land was on the road against a county rival – the Buford Yellow Jackets, and the Warriors returned home happy.

    “It’s early, but it’s great to be on top,” Rowell said. “I hope I can stay here, and I need to have strong weeks. My hope is for my picks to click each week. That would be neat.”
    Rowell said his Picks list of winners last week nearly included the UNC Tar Heels, but he opted for SC.

  • Bloxhams boost Warriors twofold

    INDIAN LAND – When Indian Land High School head football coach Horatio Blades works with the Warriors linebackers, he’s likely to do a double take.

    “They’re awesome kids,” said Blades. “They are always going at each other. You can see that sibling rivalry.”
