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.
The Red Devils (and Coosa) were the last football teams to play under the lights in Sanford Stadium until the Herschel Walker era brought night-time televised games to Athens.
