Placeholder Image

Fresh off his best game as starter, Newton quarterback Gmatreian Brown leads the Rams into region play tomorrow when they take on Newnan at Sharp Stadium. Kickoff is at 7:30.

The Rams defeated Northview last week to move to 3-0 for the second straight year. It was Newton's best offensive output so far. Brown completed 9 of 16 passes for 163 yards and a touchdown, Javonte Williams carried the ball 18 times for 166 yards and two scores and DeSean McKenzie hauled in five catches for 11 yards and a score. The Rams scored four rushing touchdowns in all.

Newton defeated the Cougars in overtime last year thanks to a furious second-half rally. The Cougars meanwhile come into the game losers of their last two.

The Rams have the second stingiest defense in Region 2-AAAAA. They're giving up eight points per game, second only to East Coweta.
