PETTIS ON THE RECORD: Former Crestview athletic director tells all

If that was a way of keeping my job, I would have stopped doing that as soon as I left.


Q: Have you second-guessed yourself about the quarterback situation, playing Dakota Davis over Dakota Dean?

A: No, I haven't second-guessed myself. He (Dean) was without question our best football player and it was one of those deals where I feel like we played the best 11 the full time at every position.

Q: Even though you don't have your best football player at the most important position (quarterback) on the field?

A: We didn't feel like that was the most important position on the field. We felt like we would be wasting him, handing off to (tailback) Micah (Reed). Anybody can hand off to Micah.

Our best shot to win football games this year was to put everything in our defense's hands. So we felt like we knew what type of offense we would have because of our personnel. We knew we were going to have a young O line and I wasn't going to stick our best player on defense drop back (to pass as the quarterback on offense) and have a bunch of young guns trying to block for him.
