Toombs County High School's sports teams are known as the Bulldogs. The nickname “Bulldogs” was adopted from Lyons High School which was combined with Toombs Central School in 1987 to make Toombs County High School. The Lyons High School colors were changed from red, white, and black to red, white, and navy to represent Toombs Central School, whose colors were yellow and navy.
The Bulldogs compete in the Georgia High School Association's class AA in region 2-AA. They are competitive in all sports but have historically been more competitive in football, baseball, and wrestling. Toombs County plays Vidalia High School each year in an event that they call "Toombs-Vidalia week". Which is a week filled with spirt that leads up to the big game. Vidalia is the Bulldogs' most hated rival. Toombs County has won one state championship in school history which was in baseball in 1996.
The Toombs County Bulldogs football team has won five region titles since its inception in 1987. The Bulldogs have an all time record of 149-115-0. Toombs County has won five region championships. The current head coach of the Bulldogs is Shane Williamson who has a career record of 57-43-2 and a 15-19 record as coach of Toombs County.
Toombs County plays in Booster Stadium, locally known as "The Pit" due to it being dug into the ground rather than being on ground level like most high school stadiums. Booster Stadium also boasts a tunnel that connects the rear parking lot with the playing surface, which is rare among high school stadiums. The stadium is known as a tough place to play due to the high level of crowd noise and its hard, unforgiving playing surface. Toombs County Board of Education officials have toyed with the idea of renovating the stadium over the past few years. Renovations would include new home stands where the visitor stands are currently located and a new field house.
