Proud of them newton eagles! Met some great friends last night that I’ve been talking to on here and the Fox southwest app for awhile now! They even surprised me with a few shirts!  Take a close look at the one on the left....😉 

very good people and I’m proud to call them my friends now!

I have to say that it is pretty ironic that this post is full of people who were Newton doubters until their respective teams played them. lol

That's funny I was thinking the same thing.  It's not just fans that played but the more advocates are the once doubters but then seen them play live.  Some of the things this team does well does not show up on paper or a 2 min highlight video.

East Bernard is solid on defense and has a 3 yard and a cloud of dust offense.  I see them try to eat up clock and protect the football.  I see newton as far too much for anyone to handle.  I just question; will nasty newton have time to put up 60 points?  (suspense builds)

Come on bro, do we gotta have this conversation every week? I guess you being from newton you gotta get that question in before EB does. 🤣

A look at Newton’s game videos tells me that their size, speed and raw talent will, as all of you seem to think, be far too much for EB, or anyone else, for that matter, to overcome.  But EB likely will put up a tougher fight than any other 3A team they’ve played.

The last time they were a four-TD-or-greater ‘dog deep into the playoffs was against Refugio.  EB beat them 43-22.

But this EB team doesn’t have the raw talent of its recent playoff teams.  They weren’t even picked to win district this year, even though they have gone at least three games deep  into the playoffs for the last ten years in a row.  This was supposedly a semi-rebuilding year. But they played hard and continued to improve each game.

But don’t underestimate the toughness and grit of these Bohemian kids.  They’re disciplined, they’re smart, and they Do. Not.  Quit.  Ever.  They’re a totally different type of people than you’re used to playing up in deep East Texas.  

You may win by as much as 40.  But I doubt.  My guess would be along lines of about 34-10. Turf field is going to keep it from being any closer, I expect.  Playing in the mud would make it interesting.

But I guarantee you one thing.  If Newton were going against EB in math, or science, or SAT scores, the Brimmers would beat hell out of them....

It seems your bottom comment was stated out of pure ignorance....there is several kids playing on this team with 4.0 and above grade point averages including our running back and linebacker.  These kids are very talented and smart.
