PETTIS ON THE RECORD: Former Crestview athletic director tells all

A couple of calls (by officials) were tough to handle.

It's one of those deals where you take a play here or there and we are 7-3 or whatever, but we felt like we beat Navarre.

We were right there with Navarre and Fort Walton and Mosley. We just felt like we were right there with everybody in our area.

The wins and losses to a coach are still the most important thing. But it ain't those kids' fault we went 4-6.

Q: Isn't that like Phillip Fulmer claiming he should still have a job at Tennessee because even though the Volunteers weren't winning, he was sending guys to the NFL where they would get paid?

A: That's right —  but those things are two separate issues, in my opinion. We didn't try to get kids signed to save our jobs.

If that was the case, I wouldn't be sending out emails to help a baseball player right now. I mean, I'm already gone, but I'm still helping all my kids and I'm still helping every other sport up there if they need my help. I'm still doing that....
