Landon Hagwood has played football for the majority of his life, working his way up from children’s leagues to a center position on Oconee County High School’s junior varsity team.

And as a cancer survivor, the sophomore plans to get back on the gridiron as soon as possible. 

After sustaining an injury during the Aug. 29 game against Clarke Central High School, Landon learned that he had Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer. Symptoms showed up during spring practice when he experienced recurrent shoulder pain.
