Cannon a short-lived LC tradition
Larry Campbell's brother-in-law built a small cannon-type device to be used before kickoffs. That contraption wasn't very big, but it sure packed a big punch. The first time it was fired at Buddy Bufford Field as a test, some in town thought there had been an earthquake or explosion. Lincoln County supporters would put the cannon near the 50, and fire it just before kickoff. That worked well for a while, but then they weren't careful with it one evening. They didn't notice that the officials were a bit too close when they pulled the firing string. We don't know exactly what was said, but that cannon hasn't been on the field since.
Lincoln County's last losing season was 1972.
