Lincoln County, its football program, its townfolk, and its legendary coach are featured in the new book "Backroads and Backfields" by GPB's Jon Nelson.
You may have seen Jon, often with a small camcorder, at many of our games during the past several years. Jon hosts Georgia Public Broadcasting's award-winning PrepSportsPlus show. He's been working on what became a 434-page book for several years, conducting many interviews during our Devils' unforgettable 2005 Championship Season.
Here's the note Jon sent us as his book became available:
Each chapter focuses on a Georgia community, including much-heralded "football" communities like LaGrange, Dalton, Gainesville, Washington County, Hawkinsville, and Clinch County. Over 30 pages are used to tell Lincoln County's story, and it's told very well.
