‘...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.
