For New England cornerback Stephon Gilmore and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, Sunday’s game against the Rams for football’s greatest prize offers an opportunity to represent Rock Hill, S.C. – otherwise known by some as Football City, USA.
“We’ve got the city on our back, and that’s all we need,” Patterson said Wednesday. “We take pride in the town we’re from. Everywhere we go, everywhere we play at, we carry them on our back.”
Rock Hill helped propel Patterson and Gilmore to this point in their careers.
Gilmore once starred at South Pointe, just like Patterson did for rival Northwestern. They met in the 2008 state championship game, with Gilmore (playing quarterback) and South Pointe coming away with a 35-14 victory.
Results of the Steele Hill Super Bowl Poll: 75% of participants picked the LA Rams to win - 25% of participants picked the New England Patriots. Congratulations to Miss Candace Adams (the only Patriots fan that I know) Also, the groundhog did not see his shadow, which means early Spring!
I want to introduce you to Titletown, TX Season 3 Episode 1: This is Gainesville. Gainesville State School, a juvenile correctional facility in Texas, has never been known for its winning football program. First-year Head Coach Roy Burns hopes to change that. (This video is 20 minutes and will require at least 1 box of tissue. An inspiring story...)

From Lancaster County Sheriff's Office
We have had two companies hit with an phishing email to their payroll departments. The suspect impersonates the company owner or someone within the company and request a payroll routing change. The request usually ask the payroll department to switch their direct deposit to another bank account/ routing number. These emails seem genuine on face value, because it appears to come from the owner/ employee. The emails originate from a masked email address (outside of the company) that may be embedded in the originating email. I have attached an information alert from U.S. Secret Service referencing these type of scams.
