Rams: Letting them off the leash

All year long Newton football made its money on offense where Rams' head coach Terrance Banks had nine returning starters from last year's team. As the Black Knights know, the Rams live and die (mostly living) on the arms and legs of Romario Johnson. However, it's been the Rams' defense that has propelled the team to new heights in this year's playoffs.

Who's next for Newton football?

They say pressure either makes pipes burst or it makes diamonds. Plenty of pressure was on Newton to follow up the win against Valdosta and solidify the Rams as a program to be reckoned with. The only pressure that showed against Central Gwinnett was the pressure from the Rams' defense.

#FanPhotoOfTheWeek

Newton versus Heritage was all it was hyped up to be, at least in terms of the jawing between the two sides in the crowd. To begin the boys matchup, Newton fans brought out their newspapers (Covington News papers of course) when the boys varsity players were announced. It was a smart play, and it worked. Although, the fan contest is over, you can still sends us your fan photos for a chance to get the #FanPhotoOfTheWeek in our weekly Sunday edition.

Play 13: Newton vs Central Gwinnett

All the talk has died down now. Newton football was named Fox 5's team of the week on Thursday and has drawn plenty of media attention the past week for its victory over Valdosta. None of that matters tonight when the Rams take on Central Gwinnett at 7:30 at Sharp Stadium.

Newton owns Heritage in season opener

If cheering was the contest that counted then Heritage was easily the victor, but it didn't. Neither did the many entertaining dance-offs between the fans of the two schools, but what did count was the Ws for both the girls' and boys' varsity basketball teams.

VALDOSTA WHO?

Play 12. That's been the goal all year for the Newton Rams. You see, playing 12 games in high school football means that you've won a first round state playoff game, something Newton hasn't done, ever. The Rams won two region playoff games in 1987, but region playoffs were eliminated in 1994 and Newton has never won a state playoff game. Until now.

Rams rise above Rockdale

The game was all but over. Rockdale was nine yards away from the endzone and led Newton 26-21 with just over five minutes to go. On third and nine Steven Montac jumped a route and intercepted a Zuri Minnifield pass and the Rams were back in business at their own five-yard line.

The history of Sharp Stadium

In April 1956, Homer Sharp, principal of Newton County High School, proposed an idea for an athletic field for the school's sport activities. A month later, that athletic field came into action as the county's board of education approved the proposal. Due to the help of the citizens in the community, the stadium was opened on September 21, 1956. It was named after Homer Sharp, because of his hard-work and passion to get the field done. Since then, the field has been used for high school sporting events, recreational uses and graduation ceremonies.
