I need more information about your football team. Is it too late to join? I have 2 boys who would be interested in playing but we don't live in Leland. Is there a business number I can call to get more information? Thanks in advance.
You don't have to live in Leland to play for us. You just have to be willing to drive back and forth. Where are you from? How old are you boys? Have they ever played football? For more information either call 910-512-3668 for Hunky Walker or 910-619-4806 for Annie Walker. Our season has started. We played our first game on 9-13-08. Both the Lil' Panthers and the Panthers won. If interested call and let us know. We will practice tonight from 6 - 8 pm at Northwest Industrial Park on 74/76.
