‘...it won’t be a nice environment’

Coming up this Friday is probably the biggest rematch in Newton history. The Rams are traveling down to face Lowndes - currently ranked No. 11 in the state by maxpreps.com - again after beating them 15-14 last year on the final play of the game that saw Davonta Jones catch a pass to tie the game before the extra point was good. The Covington News talked with Rams' head coach Terrance Banks about playing in that hostile environment and his preparation for another shocking win down in Valdosta.

It was enough to make one believe that they can go down to Lowndes ...

Homecoming

There is a saying, 'the best defense is a good offense,' but there's another saying 'defense wins a championships.' Newton (2-0, Region 2-AAAAAA) subscribes more to the mantra of having a good offense, and Westlake (2-1, Region 3-AAAAAA) is more of a defensive juggernaut.

Rams live and die with Johnson

After scoring a combined 111 points in just two games to start the season, it's safe to say Newton's high-powered offense is going to be tough to stop. It's also probably safe to say that Newton will live and die on the shoulders – and the legs – of junior quarterback Romario Johnson.

Rams outshine Eagles

It may have been the most hyped scrimmage in Newton county football history. There were no kickoffs, punt returns, or hits to the quarterbacks but it was football, and more importantly to the community it was Newton vs Eastside.
