But do you know, Lewis Naza, Dakori West, Jordan Reed, Chance Harrison, Javon Porteous-Punch, Karlen Singleton and Alex Jacobs? They make up Newton's undersized offensive line that has performed exceptionally well, helping to create big play opportunities for the Rams' skill players.

Britney Ellis' right knee popped in the third inning of a blowout against Tucker on September 24, senior night. Grimacing in pain on the brink of tears, Ellis asked for the trainer, Kelsey Ney, to take a look at it. She did.
