Chandler Newton knew his team needed a big win last week, and the West Hall quarterback delivered.

Newton passed for 211 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another 59 yards and one touchdown in a 38-9 win over Walnut Grove last week, helping the Spartans to buck an 0-4 start and start the subregion season 1-0.

The performance landed Newton the Gainesville Jaycees Player of the Week award.

The West Hall sophomore had been knocked out of the Spartans' previous game with a concussion but came flying back on Sept. 30. And West Hall will look for Newton to continue playing a key role in this week's "Battle of Oakwood" against rival Johnson.

Access North Georgia sports editor Morgan Lee traveled to Oakwood to present Newton with his award and talk about West Hall's season so far and the Spartans' goals headed forward. To watch the interview, simply scroll down and click play.
