As we near the end of the 2015 regular season, Richland (Wa.) looks poised to make a run at a 4A state title. One of the biggest reasons the play of LB Lakota Wills who recently told NEI he has committed to Air Force.
“I committed to Air Force a month ago,” Wills told Northwest Elite Index. “I just had a gut feeling that it was the right place for me.
“I want to push myself and I liked the environment there and I wanted to major in civil engineering.”
In addition to his offer from AFA, Wills also holds offers from Portland State, Montana State, Eastern Washington and Idaho.
“I’ve also been hearing from Hawaii and Wyoming and Army, but they haven’t offered yet.”
Wills said he plans to take his official visit to Air Force in January after the completion of his senior season.
Speaking of his final season of football, Wills is the leader of a team that current is 7-1 and poised for a deep run into the state playoffs.
For his part, the senior linebacker has racked up over 80 tackles to go along with four sacks and 10 tackles-for-loss.
Wills and the rest the Bombers will take on the Lewis and Clark Tigers this Friday in a round-of-32 state playoff matchup.
