New Coach Joins Devil Football Staff

April 24, 2005

Lee Chomskis will be joining the Red Devil football coaching staff for the upcoming season.

Lee is the nephew of Lincolnton native, former Red Devil player and coach, and state and national coaching legend Dan Pitts. He previously was the head coach for Class AAAAA Evans. He is currently the baseball coach and an assistant football coach at Mary Persons, and he lettered in baseball at Augusta State. Lee and his family have been frequent visitors to Lincoln County over the years due to his family connections here, so it's almost a "Welcome Home" to Lee.

Coach Chomskis' hiring fills the opening created when long-time Lincoln County assistant Glen Hardeman turned in his whistle this spring. Our best wishes to Glen as he enjoys his fall afternoons off for the first time in a long time!

And one other little football note we've heard -- a former assistant will be rejoining the football staff this season. So "Welcome Back" to him! (Details later...)
