The next great Newton


A really good article about Morgan Newton, the 2009 UK highly-ranked quarterback. Recommended reading. Here is a taste: "During the 2008 season, Newton again brought his "A" game, leading Carmel to a 13-2 record and a runner-up appearance in the state championship game. Against six of Indiana's top programs -- Cathedral, Warren Central, Ben Davis, Fort Wayne Snider, Penn and Center Grove (two games) -- Newton averaged 280 yards and 2.9 touchdowns (running and passing). On the season, Newton threw for 1,938 yards and 22 touchdowns and rushed for 1,664 yards and 26 touchdowns."
