Josh Fulmer on his team

What Newton does well: “Kade is one of the fastest guys in the state, so that’s a strength. I also think we’re going to have a pretty good defensive line. If you can defend the run, it definitely makes things a lot easier.”

What has to improve: “Nobody wants to go through what we did toward the end of last season. This football season really started last winter. We took a look at our commitment, and I’m glad we did that.”
