LINCOLNTON, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Under legendary head coach Larry Campbell, Lincoln Co. was always one of the teams to beat. The Red Devils boast 14 state titles.

But since Campbell stepped down after the 2014 season, the program hasn't had much success in the playoffs.

Now for the first time since 1973, the Red Devils will not make a post-season appearance. Lincoln Co. finished 1-5 in region play, but did end on a high note, beating Twiggs Co. 54-0 to close out the season.

The past few years, the program has struggled with player turnout.
