Richmond Hill High School will scrimmage high-powered Camden County in football the next two seasons, RHHS Athletic Director Mickey Bayens said.

"If you want to be the best, you've got the play the best," he said. 

The Georgia High School Association allows one scrimmage per year against an opponent prior to the start of the regular season, and in recent years, RHHS has scrimmaged South Effingham. 

Richmond Hill coach Lyman Guy was out of town and could not be reached. The Wildcats (10-2) advanced to the second-round of the State Class AAAAA playoffs in 2013 and made the state playoffs for the second year in a row for the first time in school history. 

Camden County, which competes in Class AAAAAA, is widely considered one of the nation's elite football programs, with state titles in 2003, 2008 and 2009 and 2007 and 2008 in Georgia's largest classification. 

The team finished 10-2 in 2013 under first-year coach Welton Coffey, who replaced Jeff Herron.
