Flag football now a part of Crestview High athletics

"It's the same thing, basically (playing quarterback and point guard)," she said. "You have to do the same stuff; talk and get the ball to the open person."

Recie Brown said football was a first for her as well, but it had a certain appeal.

"I had never played field sports so it was quite different for me to come and play this sport," she said. "I've never played it before so it's an opportunity for me to play.

"I have speed I can use to help my teammates."

Brown said her favorite parts of the game were running the ball and being there for her teammates. The hardest part is keeping her head in the game and not having letdowns.

Crestview beat Fort Walton Beach 7-6 Thursday.

Brown scored the game-tying touchdown with 3:37 left in the fourth quarter. Megan Martin scored the extra point on a pass from Coleman.
