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.

I don't know him!
On a rainy night in Lexington, the Devils were struggling against the Oglethorpe County Patriots. More of the officials' calls seem to be going against the Devils, and the Devil bench was getting a bit testy. A visitor on the Devil sideline told the officials to just let the kids play. The flag came flying, and cost the Devils 15 yards. Coach Larry Campbell explained to the official that he didn't know the gentleman that made the comment, and therefore his team shouldn't be penalized. They didn't buy it. The person making the comment to the officials was a former Red Devil assistant but went on to be an official for a few years.
Buddy Bufford and Thomas Bunch both played as Red Devils before leading the Lincolnton team to state football championships.
