Get ready. High school football playoffs are approaching.
And for the first time ever, they will be played at Lumpkin County High School.
The Indians squad faces one of their biggest games in school history on Friday, Nov. 14 as they host their first-ever State Playoff game.
Under first year head coach Ty Maxwell, Lumpkin County rose from the ashes of a 2-8 record last season to finish as the Region 7-AAA Runner-up this year.
The Indians will battle Elbert County in their quest to do what no other Lumpkin varsity football team has done before—win that elusive first playoff game.
Coach Maxwell has even issued a challenge to the community to fill every one of the football stadium’s 5,600 seats this Friday evening.
Kickoff will be 7:30 p.m. at LCHS stadium.
For all kinds of playoff information, check out the special section on Pages 7-10A of this week’s Dahlonega Nugget and the sports section on Page 1C for all the details.
