CRESTVIEW — Fresh off breaking a four-game losing streak with a 27-24 win over Choctawhatchee, the Crestview football team returns home Friday night in another big District 2-6A game against Navarre.

Kickoff for the game at Jack Foster Stadium between the Bulldogs and Raiders is 7 p.m.

There were several reasons Crestview Coach Kevin Pettis was happy to pull out a victory over the Indians.

“It’s more like getting a gorilla off your back instead of a monkey,” he said. “Like I told the team after the game, I never thought 3-4 would feel so good and it does because it puts us back in the hunt for a district championship and you know we control our own destiny.

“The way the math works out is we are all (Crestview, Fort Walton Beach, Choctawhatchee, Navarre and Niceville) going to be in it (the district race) to the bitter end, except maybe Mosley, and they could play spoiler. So every game is going to be a big game for us. As a coach, that’s all that you want at the end of the season. You are playing for a district championship or a playoff berth and you are giving yourself a chance.

“Controlling their own destiny” referenced that the Bulldogs can assure themselves of a spot in the playoffs with a win this week against the Raiders and by beating Mosley and Niceville to close out the season.
