The saying goes numbers never lie, that saying is inaccurate. Numbers won't necessarily lie, but they won't tell you the full story.

Sunday is for the NFL, Saturday is for college football, but Friday? Friday is for the gridiron warriors that eventually gravitate to college, and for some, the pros. Friday is for high school football.

‘...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. The Covington News talked with Rams' head coach Terrance Banks about playing in that hostile environment and his preparation for another shocking win down in Valdosta.

Rams show promise, game cancelled

For the second week in a row, Newton's game got cancelled after almost one full quarter of play against Westlake. This game was supposed to be the one to test Newton, and see if its two wins weren't just wins because they were against weak competition. Although there was only a small sample size to judge from, as neither coach had the benefit of a halftime or end of a quarter to make adjustments, it was enough to see that the Rams are special. It was enough to make one believe that they can go down to Lowndes ...

Homecoming

There is a saying, 'the best defense is a good offense,' but there's another saying 'defense wins a championships.' Newton (2-0, Region 2-AAAAAA) subscribes more to the mantra of having a good offense, and Westlake (2-1, Region 3-AAAAAA) is more of a defensive juggernaut.

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.
