CRESTVIEW — Crestview High School’s football team took to the field of Jack Foster Stadium on Friday evening for the Red and White scrimmage.

The scrimmage was a sneak peek to Friday's jamboree when the Bulldogs host Navarre and Escambia.

The first quarter kicks off at 6 p.m. with Crestview taking on Navarre. The Bulldogs play Escambia in the third quarter.

First-year Crestview coach Tim Hatten isn't concerned about winning the jamboree.

"I don't think you get any points for winning jamborees," he said. "In my 14-year high school career I don't think we won but two or three of them. We just want to execute.

"We want to do what we do and do it well. If that means we score more points than the other team, so be it. But if we don't, it doesn't count and we are just going to make sure we keep everybody healthy."

Keeping players healthy and tracking how well players have grasped the fundamentals are the points of Friday's game.
