Despite big loss, Newcastle defense is seen as a stength
By Jason Kersey
Newcastle lost last Friday at Clinton, 42-6, but senior quarterback and safety Trevor Evans said he still feels like the team has a great defense.
“We have a really good defense,” Evans said. “We didn’t really show it last week, but our defense is stacked. Even though Clinton beat us really bad, they couldn’t run up the middle on us at all. That’s something positive we could take from that game; well, it was about the only positive thing.”
Through its first three games, Newcastle gave up just 28 points, and one of them was on a punt return touchdown against Jones. In fact, Jones’ other touchdown was scored after return down inside the Racer 5-yard line.
