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

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.
