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.

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.

Who's got next?

For the past two seasons, no team has been better in the county - in its region for that matter, than Newton's boys. The Rams are the reigning two-time Region 2-AAAAA champions and compiled a 33-1 region record since 2009. In short, they've been atop the mountain for a while. But things will look a lot different this year.

Rams face must-win to keep playoffs hopes alive

Rams win, inch closer to playoffs

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.

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.
