Barden and Wynn Bring Red Devil Spirit back to Lincolnton

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.
