Plain and simple Ian Lockwood was an 18 year old kid who was taken to early. He had a mom, a dad, a sister, and brain cancer. He was your all-american southern boy who loved football. For most of 2010 he thought he was cancer free. But in September some tests revealed the cancer had come back. Lockwood with great courage, continued to play football. In October he scored his only two touchdowns for Navarre HS in a 49-10 route of Milton.
Ian Lockwood died today. It sucks. The tie to Gator Nation is Urban Meyer. Meyer had Lockwood over to his house for dinner the night he resigned. When the Gators beat Joe Paterno’s Nittany Lions, Ahmad Black’s interception ball went to Lockwood.
Brain cancer took a brave kid today. Gator Nation lost a friend. Heaven is +1. Ian Lockwood FTW.
