LHS Eleven Now Hard at Practice

September 01, 1943

A light and inexperienced squad of only 23 Lincolnton High footballers moved into their third week of practice Monday afternoon.

Only five hold-overs from last year's team are returning and they form the ucleus of the '43 team.

The complete schedule has not yet been announced but the school is planning a seven game chart which includes teams from Thomson, Warrenton, McCormick, and Washington. The Washington game will be played on Thanksgiving Day and will be the Red Devils' last game of the season.

Here is the roster of the 1943 Red Devil Football Team:
