CRESTVIEW — Crestview High School's football team gets a B for its first spring practice, Coach Tim Hatten said.

"It would be what I call an above-average practice," he said. "Our enthusiasm and knowledge of what we are doing is very good."

Year two under Hatten got off to a strong start on Friday as the team moved briskly through a variety of drills.

The practice was an extension of what the team has been doing in their football class period only with a full staff of coaches available to work the position groups, Hatten said.

"We've had them a season, so they just have to get a little bit better at some little things," he said. Some defensive personnel are trying to be two-way players for us. We are trying to make sure we maximize our talent.

"We are trying to do things that are conducive to being the best that we can be ..."

Hatten said the type of athletes on the team will allow him to open up the playbook and the Bulldogs will do things on offense he wasn't even able to the last several years he coach Pearl River Community College.
