Lincoln County will open its 2006 Region 7-A schedule this Friday night in Augusta when the Devils face the Fighting Irish of Aquinas.
The Devils, still smarting from their 3-0 loss to Washington-Wilkes week before last, must now put that game behind them and concentrate on winning Region 7-A.
Aquinas is coming off back-to-back playoff berths, but lost 12 senior starters. Only four starters return on offense with three on defense.
Fullback John Douglas (6-3, 235), quarterback Michael Cardwell (6-3, 185), and huge defensive tackle Nick Ryan (6-8, 340) are considered college prospects. Douglas has committed to Auburn University.
Game time is 7:30 as is the case with all region games this season.
