The Newton Eagles celebrated a state championship less than a month ago, and the positive vibes have carried into the offseason for a handful of their players.

The 2019 standouts Darwin Barlow, Tamauzia Brown, and Josh Foster each received an offer from Arkansas State, they announced on Twitter, Tuesday.

Barlow and Brown now have a combined nine Division I FBS scholarship offers, while Arkansas State became the first school to offer Foster.

All three players were instrumental in Newton's championship season.

Barlow led the team with 2,246 rushing yards and 38 touchdowns. He holds additional offers from Baylor, Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss, and TCU.

Brown starred on both sides of the ball. On offense, he caught 54 passes for 867 yards and 13 touchdowns while rushing for 565 yards and five TD's. As a cornerback, he made 12 interceptions. Baylor, Oklahoma State, and Southern Miss have also offered Brown.

Foster played quarterback and defensive back. He passed for 1,977 yards with 30 touchdowns and seven interceptions and ran for 553 yards and 15 additional scores.

Arkansas State competes in the Sun Belt Conference and is coached by Blake Anderson. The Red Wolves were 7-5 overall and 6-2 in league play in 2017.

Barlow, Brown, and Foster, like all juniors, are first eligible to sign with any Division I programs that offer them in December of 2018.
