Six student-athletes from Isidore Newman High School committed to continue their academic and athletic careers on the collegiate level. They made their commitments in front of a large crowd of family, friends, and teammates who gathered in Fitzgerald-Skertich Arena on Tuesday afternoon.

Highlights of Friday’s jamboree action between De La Salle and Newman featured on WGNO’s Friday Night Football, presented by the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
Newman head coach Nelson Stewart is not concerned about the final score of last week’s scrimmage against Holy Cross.
Newman quarterback Arch Manning kicked off tonight’s scrimmage with a 67-yard pass to Anthony Jones, but from that point on Holy Cross’s size, athleticism, and depth would take over.
If you think you are happy, you’re not as happy as Texas football coach Steve Sarkisian.
The Newman quarterback will not have a press conference, nor apparently do interviews, anytime soon.
