Mick Newton O-Lineman Out Of St. Francis College. A True Diamond In The Rough



"Mick plays as good as he eats!" Exclaimed Leon Lassiter, Head Coach of the St. Francis Frogs speaking in reference to his star left tackle Mick Newton. "As good a blind side protector as I ever seen." Standing at 6-7 and weighing in at a whopping 345 pounds, it is no mystery this behemoth lineman has no trouble man handling his Division II opponents. When he is not polishing up his technique and hitting the weight room, he can be seen at Diggs Barbeque on 2nd Street, polishing down something else; The Diggs Super Plate (1 pound of baby back ribs, a half chicken, 2 links of smoked sausage, and a side of maple baked beans and slaw) enough to feed a family, but just a starter of sorts for Newton. "Man....I can eat this everyday!", said Newton as he inhaled the last of his sausage and dabbed the sides of his mouth with a wetnap, with the surprising dexterity and elegance of a Carol Brady. He subsequently called out to Lester Diggs behind the counter and asked for a piece of their famous buttermilk pie.

His eating talents aside, Mick Newton is the definitive shutdown Left Tackle, not giving up a sack all season long, as the Frogs sailed through what many considered to be a tough schedule but ended the season undefeated. "We tough man, we tough. WE a team. WE winners. Like coach said WE can be broken down acronymically as WHAT EVER. Like coach Lassiter says, WHAT EVER it takes to win, well, we do."

After explaining to Newton that whatever is actually 1 word, he began digging into his forehead as though confused.....that is until Lester Diggs placed a plate in front of him wielding a generous wedge of that buttermilk pie.....

Mick Newton, a true diamond in the rough.
