Bulldogs head to Panama City for must-win district game at Mosley

“I felt like we had Navarre beat,” he said. “I felt like the call there with the bootleg to ice the game was a great call, but there was a holding call on it. It’s just one of those things where we have to make that play.” Crestview quarterback Dakota Davis scored on a bootleg, with three minutes left in the fourth quarter, only to have the score erased by a penalty.

“I felt that … we played well enough to win, but there are some other things that we’ve got to correct. We can’t get the ball inside the 30 twice on the first two drives and just get three points.”

With the Navarre game in the rearview mirror, Pettis turns his attention to the Dolphins (3-4, 0-3).

“They run the Wing-T (offense) and that’s tough to get ready for during the week because you don’t ever see it,” he said. They do a great job in their run game. They do a super job.

“It’s not going to be easy. Tommy Oliver is a tough place to play. You have to show up and play.”

Mosley will have extra incentive Friday, as longtime Dolphin coach Perry Brown will lead his team onto its home field for the last time in district play.

“Coach Brown does a fantastic job,” Pettis said. “This is his last year there. He is retiring at the end of the year and he wants to win every game he can at Tommy Oliver.”
