Top Ten Wolvesâ€™ football games
In celebration of Lincolnton High Schoolâ€™s centennial, the Times-News is putting together a list of the top 10 Lincolnton High football games of all time.
There have been many memorable games throughout the Wolvesâ€™ long gridiron history, and we would like your help in compiling a list of the greatest ever.
We are asking that fans select their three favorite games, and from that list, we will compile the top 10 of all time.
For example, a list might look something like this: 1993 state championship win over Burlington Cummings, 2001 playoff win over Shelby to break a 35-year drought against the Golden Lions, 1967 playoff win over Hickory on a field goal by Lester Reinhardt.
You may email your top three picks to Mike Powell or David Keever at these email addresses: Professor powell @ aol.com or keeverdavid @yahoo.com. For those without email, the list may be mailed to: Lincolnton Top 10, PO 1953, Lincolnton, NC 28093.
We will need your entries no later than the date for the regular season finale against East Rutherford on Nov. 5.
