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.

Game analysis: Finding gems

Without two of their usual starters, senior receiver Davonta Jones and defensive back Steven Montac, the Rams were able to fend off a scrappy Alcovy team and cruise to a 33-7 victory. Within the game Newton was able to realize the depth it has at quarterback and at running back. The Tigers saw that they're not without promise on defense and that turnovers are still a problem.

In Rams' coach Terrance Banks' spread offense the quarterback is the key to the offense's success. Johnson gets the options from the coaches, and it's up to him to read the defense's coverage and choose the best play.
