99 years and you don’t stop! Newton brings home school’s first title

Lakeland 14 Newton 28- North Section 1 Group 2 State Final 2017

The last time fourth ranked Newton and second seeded Lakeland faced off Newton won the contest 47-14. While the result was not quite the same this game ended with the Braves beating the Lancers once again thanks to QB Luke Young and WR Jaiden Elliot to earn the program’s first ever state title. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez was there for all the action!
