Newton Eagles

Head Coach: W.T. Johnston

District: 10-3A Division II

School colors: Purple, white

Stadium address: 2812 US Highway 190 E, Newton, TX 75966

2016 Record:  13-1 DII regional semifinalist/5-0 district

Returning Starters: 5 on offense, 7 on defense

Players to watch: 

  • LB Corbin Foster (207 tackles, 5 INTs, 5 FR)
  • DL Evander Williams (75 tackles, 5 sacks)
  • DL Bryson Thomas (84 tackles, 12 sacks, 20 TFL)
  • RB Darwin Barlow (1,356 rushing)

Notes: Newton will once again have a stout defense with tackle leader LB Foster covering sideline-to-sideline and the two major up front threats in DL Williams and DL Thomas anchoring the line of scrimmage. RB Barlow will give them a dual threat back on the opposite side of the ball allowing them to keep opposing defenses honest.
