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.

Running the Misbehavior Out
A few years back, two players were fighting to settle a disagreement. Coach Larry Campbell didn't put up with such lack of discipline, so he had them start running - in full pads and helmet. After several laps he allowed them to remove their helmets on the hot day. After a while longer, he let them drop their pads. After about an hour total, he stopped them and asked if they would be fighting any more. "No sir" came the quick, polite answer from each of them. Problem solved, and they got in some exercise as well.
Lincoln County was once geographically larger. A section was returned to Wilkes County so that a resident of that area could run for Wilkes County Sheriff. This may explain that "notch" in the northwest corner of the county.
