A high school team in Lincoln County played its first official football season in 1922. This year, 100 years later, we are celebrating our "Century of Excellence."
To commemorate this centennrial, we are offering this high-definition, professionally-printed unframed poster for $40.00. If you are interested, please contact Reesie Poss on Facebook Messenger or email email@example.com .
Posters are viewable in Lincolnton at C&B Drug, Wengrows, and the Library.
Please visit our new YouTube Red Devils channel to watch interesting highlights and whole games. Our featured presentation now is "THE Game", the 2005 State Championship with Washington-Wilkes in Lincolnton with over 6,000 attending. The video starts with the previous night's pep rally that includes "Radio"!
Frank Guillebeau was always a huge supporter of the Red Devils, from his playing days, while he chaired the booster club, and until his final days. In the 1970s, with some painted and a sign, he made his old "fishing car" into the Devil-Mobile, and would drive around town promoting the Devils. For a few years, before the current home stands were built, the car would drive across the field to lead the Devils onto the field for the opening kickoff.
In 1924, Lincoln County had 24 schools, with three-fourths having only one teacher.
