Seizing opportunity

The last time we saw Demetrius McCray and Justin Wray on the field together, they were engaged in one of the best high school football games the county has ever seen. Then again, Appalachian State University football fans get to see the duo play together every Saturday. Or at least they will next year.

She's got game

Newton basketball has a rich tradition. The boys' team won the state championship in 1964 and legendary coach Ron Bradley guided his team to a state-record 129-game home winning streak spanning a nine-year period. More recently, the Rams have won two region championships and made it to the Class AAAAA Final Four in 2010.

Stephenson runs over Newton 34-6

The Rams knew what they had to do over the next two weeks if they were going to make the state playoffs - win one or both games. Apparently Stephenson's Mike Davis didn't really care.

Rams fall to Newnan 21-7 for first loss

Newton's bid to take down Newnan and open the season 4-0 for a second straight season never really got going Saturday. Poor field position, penalties and three turnovers sunk the Rams and it was the Cougars who avenged last year's stunning loss with a 21-7 win.

No play? No way

At some point, someone has to be held accountable for officiating mistakes in high school games. It's gone on too long. Each year, whether it's baseball, basketball, softball or football, amateur referees tasked to officiate high school games in Georgia continue to make mistakes but won't own up to them. Something has to give.

Wild Ram win

In what can only be described as a contentious final two minutes of Friday's Eastside-Newton game, The Eagles had the game won twice in the matter of seconds only to see watch the Rams steal the game on a late touchdown.

Collision course

Three years ago, Newton held the ball against Eastside the entire fourth quarter only to score the tying touchdown on fourth down with seconds remaining. A spirited overtime saw the Eagles hold on for the win after a critical stop on a two-point conversion. That epic matchup went down as the best game between the two rival schools to date. It was also the last time Eastside beat Newton.

Rams need work but are on the right path

Newton is a work in progress. Really you can say that about every high school football team. Seldom does a team hit the ground running and look playoff ready in week one let alone the preseason. And after watching the Rams play Rockdale Friday, it's clear they have a lot of work to do. The good news is they have a lot to work with. That and their defense would have scored 26 fantasy football points.
