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 first of a two-part series, we will focus on Crestview’s offense. We will break down the defense in Saturday’s edition.

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

CRESTVIEW — It was a fast and furious May for Crestview High School’s football team under new head coach Tim Hatten’s direction.

Hatten ditched former coach Kevin Pettis’ power running game and installed a spread offense.

"I thought we had a really good productive spring and it's a good way to lead into summer workouts," Hatten said. "You always want to leave spring feeling like you progressed from day one. And we have progressed light years from day one.

"Any time you play a game and you have fans in the stadium, you like to score more points than the other team, but if you are going to be on the wrong side (of the final score) it needs to be in a jamboree or Kickoff Classic."
