Hatten expects an easier year two

CRESTVIEW — Tim Hatten's second year as Crestview High School's football coach starts Thursday with spring practice's opening.

The Bulldogs will need a replacement for defensive end Denzel Ware, who will play football at the University of Kentucky.

Crestview also has taken a hit on the offensive side, with rising senior running back Emmanuel Reed transferred out of the program.

But Hatten doesn't spend time thinking about players lost; rather, he chooses to focus on those who are on his roster.

"You have kids come and you have kids go,” he said. "The players we have concern me more than anyone not in my program, and that's kind of how you have to deal with it."

3 quarterbacks, developing skills

Hatten expects year two to be easier than year one, if for no other reasons than players being familiar with his offense and quarterbacks better understanding the offensive scheme.
