School Spotlight: Newton

Newton high school is in the small town of Newton, Tx. Located on HWY 190 about 15 mins from Louisiana. This small town has had numerous guys play college football and two have made the NFL. Newton is a traditional power house football program in Texas playing 3A-2 Region III District 12. Since the 2004 season, the Eagles have been to the state playoffs every year, gone Undefeated twice and has been state runner up 5 times. Stats since 2014: 12-4 (2014) State Runner up, 8-5 (2015) 3rd Round Playoffs, 13-1 (2016) State Runner Up, 15-0 (2017) State Champion, 15-0 (2018) State Champion, 11-2 (2019) 3rd Round Playoff, 7-3 (2020) 2nd Round Playoff, and 10-2 (2021) 3rd Round Playoff.

Some of the standouts form the 2021 season and will be on the roster in 2022 are: OT Noah Nava, OT Ethan Lott, RB Tyler Porter, MLB Leighton Foster, FS Raylin Adams, and CB Maliek Woods.

Noah Nava is a class of 2023 offensive lineman. Noah is 6′ and weighs 250 lbs. Noah is a 2x all district player.

Ethan Lott is a class of 2023 offensive lineman. Ethan is 6’5″ and weighs 265 lbs. Ethan his a physical lineman that uses his hands to make pancakes. He has a big frame and he uses it.

Tyler Porter is a class of 2023 Athlete. Tyler is 5’9″ and is a huge playmaker both on offense and defense. Tyler has quick speed and good hands. He can play in the backfield, or move him out to the slot, or he can make plays on the defensive side.

Leighton Foster is a class of 2023 Linebacker. He is 6’2″ and weighs 195 lbs. Foster is a consistent linebacker and plays smart football. He is good a gap protection in the run game.

Raylin Adams is a class of 2024 Free Safety. Raylin has good speed and field awareness as a young player. I like how he will come up to lay a hit in the box and how he reads an offense.

Maliek Woods is a class of 2023 Cornerback. He is 5’11” and weighs 155 lbs. Maliek has great awareness and can make the big pay.
