McCORMICK -- Lincoln County kicked off its 2016 varsity football season here last Friday nightwith a 41-0 whipping of the McCormick Chiefs. Quay Hartfield and Javon Reid each ran for two touchdowns and over 100 yards to lead the Devil offense to 330 yards.
Red Devil games will again be available live on the radio and on the Internet, with video the following Wednesday.
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.

Cold nights in Georgia
Over the years, the Devils have played many games on cold Georgia nights. These are some of the more memorable: - Model - 1979 Class AA state title game there - lost 24-21 - Mary Persons - 1979 Class AA state semifinals there - won - Coosa - 1961 Class B state title game at Sanford Stadium - lost 21-0 - Wilcox County - 19xx playoff game at home - won
A football squad was not the first sports team fielded by Lincolnton High. A track team was formed in 1921, the year before Lincolnton first appeared on a gridiron.
