Newman achieves school history with undefeated regular season

(WVUE) - For the first time since Eli Manning was quarterbacking Newman in 1998, the Greenies finished a regular season undefeated and for the first time since Peyton Manning was calling the shots in 1991, it's a 10-0 mark.

Head coach Nelson Stewart, a former teammate of Peyton's at the school, called the 10-0 record a "sacred" mark. The 2017 Greenies achieved their mark in the history books with a 41-0 win over Fisher Friday night.

LHSAA will announce playoff brackets Saturday.
