Do or die time for Bulldogs

Crestview football

Crestview tailback Micah Reed (4) follows the block of Justin Abdo around right end in last week’s game with Fort Walton Beach. Reed led the Bulldog attack with 179 yards rushing on 33 carries. Crestview coach Kevin Pettis said the Bulldog offense must take some pressure off Reed if the team is to beat Choctaw this week.

CRESTVIEW – If ever a football team were in need of a win, Crestview is that team, as the Bulldogs travel to Choctawhatchee on Friday for a 7 p.m. game at Etheredge Stadium.

Crestview (2-4, 0-1) has lost its last four games. Last Friday, the Bulldogs lost 21-17 to Fort Walton Beach in the District 1-6A opener.

Choctaw also is 2-4 and coming off a 21-17 District 2-6A loss to Navarre. However, the Indians are 1-1 in district play having upset Niceville earlier in the season.

Bulldog coach Kevin Pettis didn’t try to downplay the importance of the game.

“Without question it’s the biggest game since I’ve been here,” he said. This is probably the most important game on our schedule. This season is far from over.

“It can go one or two ways. We just have to buckle down and do what we have to.”
