Lincoln County Featured in New Football Book!

March 25, 2008

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:

After too many years of writing, hemming, and hawing, the book I've written on high school football is finally completed and released. It's a lot thicker than I thought it would be...

The folks at Trafford Publications have been very patient with a perfectionist, and it's out there for the world to see ((and, hopefully, purchase))

Thanks to all of you in Lincoln County for all of your encouragement all of this time,

Just thought I should let you know,

PS- Oh, if any one of you would be interested in picking it up, here's where you go...

And we'll see you soon...

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.
