Grady senior quarterback Caylin Newton was selected as the Atlanta Touchdown Club’s Back of the Week for his performance against Lithia Springs last Friday.
Caylin led the Gray Knights to a 74-14 victory by tossing five touchdown passes and running for another score. His brother, Cam, the reigning National Football League MVP, won the award as well during his senior season in high school in 2006. Caylin and Cam are only the fifth set of brothers to win the prestigious award.
Caylin will lead Grady (3-1), ranked No. 10 in Class AAAAA in the Atlanta Journal Constitution/Georgia High School Football Daily Top 10 poll, against Decatur (1-3), Friday, 7:30 p.m., at Lakewood Stadium.
