Bulldogs look to keep things going in key District 2-6A game with Navarre

While the win over the Indians was big for Crestview (3-4, 1-1), it won’t mean much if the Bulldogs don’t win Friday.

“If we don’t take care of business, this week we are going to need some help down the road,” Pettis said. “Our mentality this week is just to do what we do and control our own destiny. The worst thing as a coach is to have to rely on another team to help you get into the playoffs. You want to be able to do it yourself.”

Navarre (5-1, 2-0) is under the command of first-year coach Jay Walls, who, like Pettis, is a Rutherford graduate.

“Navarre’s got a good football (team) and Coach Walls and them do a good job.” Pettis said. “We are going to have to bring our A game if we want to win.

“They are burning it up right now so I’m sure they are going to bring a big crowd. We will have a big crowd so it will be a playoff-type atmosphere.”

The Raiders run a spread offense that features tight end/wide receiver Jordan Leggett. The 6-foot-6 Leggett isn’t Navarre’s only weapon.

Pettis said quarterback Andrew Rieves and running back Jay Warren are very capable players as well.
