"I know him and I saw him at the middle school level. Just in the week that we've been here, watching his demeanor and the way he handles himself with people intermingling with everybody, I just felt real good about giving him the ball.

“... I was so proud of him. What a way to start your career."

Marianna scored two runs off Crestview starting pitcher Travis Wiljakainen in the first inning. But Wiljakainen bounced back to keep the visitors off the scoreboard in the second and third innings.

Meanwhile, the Bulldog offense was getting cranked up.

Crestview scored a run in the second inning as Pierce Cadenhead reached on an infield hit and later scored on a Wiljakainen double.

Crestview plated seven runs in the third. Hunter Willis had the inning’s big hit, a three-run double that scored Jordan Chamberlain, Forrest and Drew Graham.

Willis, Corey Armstrong, Matt French and Devin Wimmer also scored in the Crestview third inning.
