Lincoln County Senior Javon Reid understands what it means to be a senior quarterback and leader at Lincoln County.
“That’s the main thing, the tradition,” Reid said. “Because there’s a tradition, a lot of people look up to you. You have to take charge and lead.”
After a successful individual season that produced more than 1,000 yards passing and rushing , Reid will again be counted on to lead one of the most respected programs in the area and state of Georgia.
The Red Devils picked up seven wins last season for the third time in four years, and their last region title and deep playoff run came in 2012. The players enter this season understanding what that means in a county centered on its high school football team.
Reid sees this as the team attempts to snap that streak and return Lincoln County to its familiar territory deep in the playoffs. Defense will again be the calling card, but with Reid’s athleticism and a stable of talented running backs behind him, the Red Devils could have the offense to match it.
Reid also brings a strong sense of confidence to his position.
“We look good this year,” Reid said. “We just have to come together as one. We just have so much talent it’s crazy. We have speed, strength, everything.”
