Newton is a community that’s very small but full of football pride! It’s tiny but mighty when it comes to high school sports and the whole town stands behind it. Newton Texas is not the biggest or the best when it comes to other towns but it’s a place where you can put your trust in people. Everyone is like family and there’s no ther community like it.
