Editor’s Note: With the end of spring football practice, focus turns to the fall, but how does first-year Crestview High School coach Tim Hatten assess his team?

Today, in the second of a two-part series, we will focus on Crestview’s defense.

Next week, Baker School coach Matt Brunson will break down the Gators.

CRESTVIEW — It might be fair to say the Crestview High School football team's defense is better than the 25 points it surrendered to Escambia and Navarre in the May 24 jamboree.

Escambia scored on its first possession of the night and didn't find the end zone again.

The Raiders scored a defensive touchdown, recovering a Bulldog fumble in the end zone. A second Navarre touchdown came after the Raiders recovered a fumble on the Crestview 31-yard line.

Bulldog coach Tim Hatten sees potential in the defense that was missing several key players to injury in the jamboree. The defense also will improve with defensive lineman Denzel Ware’s return.
