The football team qualified for the sectional semifinal after defeating Shelbyville 32-29 for the first round of the IHSAA Sectionals. It had been the first time in three seasons that they had advanced into the Sectionals. Their season ended October 29th as the Red Devils lost 42-36 from Connersville. Senior John Carter took over the position of quarterback halfway through the season, even though he is a wide receiver, providing a spark to the Devils. Two Richmond players, Carter and Marquis Johnson, were named to the All-NCC team.
