Newton-Conover ready to defend title

Charlotte, NC (WBTV)-One of the big surprises in high school football last season was Newton-Conover. In their first year being coached by Brint Russell, the Red Devils won a piece of the conference championship.

This season, they return 8 starters on both sides of the ball with a big strength on both lines.

The D-Line will be anchored by big #75 Trent Thomas.

And the O-Line will be led by #72 Cody Sifford.

There's plenty of talent at the skilled positions including RB Nick Baker and WR Cameron Stanley.

The key to success will be the play of new QB Cameron Stanley.

The Red Devils have a chance to get off to a quick start and if they do, watch out for this team.
