Lincoln County's 2020 gridiron slate features new venues from Hiawassee to Statesboro, perennial state powers, old rivals, and a neighboring school that hasn't played the Red Devils in over 80 years.
Lee Chomskis is returning to Lincoln County High as Athletic Director and Head Football Coach.
The GHSA approved Warren County's request to move from next year's Region 8-A Public to Region 7-A Public, reducing the size of Lincoln County's new region.
This year's Region 7-A teams will move to five different regions for 2020.
GHSA has released the tentative region assignments for the 2020-2022 school years. Lincoln County will be in 8-A Public with Washington-Wilkes, Warren County, Greene County, Commerce, Social Circle, and Towns County.

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).
Before they were the Red Devils, the Lincolnton football team was known as the Bearcats.
