Lincoln County's Red Devils will kickoff their 2016 varsity season this Friday in South Carolina as they visit the McCormick Chiefs.
Red Devil games will again be available live on the radio and on the Internet, with video the following Wednesday.
Our Red Devils looked good in last night's storm-shortened scrimmage with the Evans Knights.
For the past 36 years, Vernon Wilson has spent thousands of hours helping with the Red Devils before, during, and after games. From preparing the sideline equipment, repairing helmets, handling/cleaning footballs, supervising the student managers, and (most importantly) cheering on his (our) beloved Red Devils. From "walking on" during his high school years when the team needed a placekicker, to his Buddy Bufford Field wedding to Kim as a few years ago, Vernon's heart has always been with Lincoln County's football team.
Reserved seats for the upcoming Red Devil season go on sale August 8 at the ticket window at LCHS. Tickets for six home events will cost $54.

For many years, the orange pylons around the endzones at Buddy Bufford Field were unique. Coach Larry Campbell put the year and score of the Devils' state championship game wins on the pylons (one each).
Lincolnton's first athletic title was the 1921 Atlantic Cup won in a track meet at Crawfordville.
