Breaking down the Bulldogs’ offense

Baylark, a three-year starter on the Crestview basketball team, turned heads with his play-making ability at receiver and impressed Hatten with his toughness and willingness to work.

"Ronnie Baylark will be a great wide receiver," Hatten said. "Ronnie, of all people, is going to hang out with you and he's not going to think about quitting. Ronnie hasn't missed a practice.

"He doesn't know a lot about the position of wide receiver, but he does know how to use his body like in basketball. Once the ball is in the air all it's time for him to be is an athlete. That part of it is basketball because when the ball goes up, those guys (basketball players) know how to use their bodies to get to the ball."

Other receivers are Matt Gillis, Jamal Coleman, Devin Siler, Studevan and Daniels. Hatten said all of the running backs will line up in the backfield as some sort of slot receiver so Robinson, Reed and the other running backs also can be considered receivers depending on the formation.

Gillis is the kind of player who is often overlooked, Hatten said.

"Matt Gillis is a solid little kid, a solid little player," he said. "He's going to block and he's going to be where he's supposed to be. There's nothing more important for a quarterback than being where you are supposed to be.

"Most quarterbacks find comfort with guys like that."
