Wilkinson County is having one of its best football seasons in many years as the Warriors sit atop Region 7-A with a perfect 3-0 record. The team from Irwinton will match up with our Devils this Friday at Buddy Bufford Field.
Wilkinson County moved down from Class AA before this season. The Warriors had outstanding seasons in 1999 (11-1) and 2000 (10-2) under their present coach, James Hagins. Wilkinson demolished Monticello 43-0 last week, and hold big wins over GMC and Aquinas. They started the season with a big 35-0 win over AA Putnam County. They lost by seven to AAAA Jones County, and were caught early by Wilcox County, a surprise in Class A this year.
The Warriors have met our Devils only twice, with Lincoln County winning big in 1990 and 1991.
