The BBF Wedding
Vernon Wilson was the Red Devil manager in high school. He saw they needed a kicker, so he worked hard and became the Devils' placekicker. After graduation, he volunteered as chief manager during practices and games. Nothing could have been more fitting for Vernon than to get married on Buddy Bufford Field. On June 18, 2011, he and Kim Poss tied the knot on the 50-yard-line about a few hundred fans watching. Mini footballs emblazoned with wedding info was thrown to the fans. The reception at a First Assembly of God continued the football theme, with artificial turf with the LC star. Vernon helped with the Red Devils from 1980 through 2015 - 36 years and thousands of volunteer hours.
Buddy Bufford and Thomas Bunch both played as Red Devils before leading the Lincolnton team to state football championships.
