All summer long NFL stars have returned to the CSRA to host camps for local youths. and Monday night in Lincolnton the last – and possibly the biggest – was held in Lincolnton.
Former Red Devil stars Jarius Wynn and Brandon Barden held a skills camp at the Lincoln County Rec Center and they brought a who's who of former Red Devil stars.
Former Georgia running back and two-time NFL Pro Bowler Garrison Hearst was in the house – showing that you can take the football player out of Lincoln County, but you can't take the Red Devil out of the player.
“When I played for the 49ers, I would always talk about Lincoln County,” Hearst said. “There was always a locker room argument about who had the best high school program. But when you have a program that is one of the winningest in the nation – it speaks for itself.”
As for the hosts of the camp – both are gearing up for summer workouts. Wynn recently signed with the Chargers while Barden will fight for a roster spot at Titans camp.
