Athlete of the Week: New Boston's Keith Baldwin & Quinn Dedmon

Posted: Updated:
New Boston, TX -

This year's New Boston football team may go down as the best in school history.  The Lions finished 13-2 and made it all the way to the state semifinals.  The team could never have done it without its two-headed rushing attack and Tatum Everett has more on our Athletes of the Week: New Boston running backs Quinn Dedmon and Keith Baldwin.

New Boston made program history in 2013.  The Lions set a record for most wins in a season and making the school's first ever state semifinal appearance.  And the year couldn't be defined better than by New Boston's performance in their regional championship victory over rival Daingerfield.

And thanks to dominating performances by New Boston's dynamic running back duo.  The Lions got their shot at redemption.  Daingerfield was the reigning 5-time defending regional champs and winner of 9 straight, including an earlier season slaughter of New Boston 40-23.  

Daingerfield also beat the Lions in the regional championship last season.  But behind a 230 yard and 5 touchdown performance from Quinn Dedmon and Keith Baldwin.  The Lions owned the Tigers 41-14.  When thinking of the running back duo, the first thing that came to first year head coach Jamey Thomas' mind was unselfish.

Although New Boston exited the playoffs in the semifinal round this past weekend, it's still been a historic season for Dedmon, Baldwin, and the rest of the Lions.  But you can count on them always remembering their redemption win over Daingerfield, one of the best victories the program's ever had.
