PETTIS ON THE RECORD: Former Crestview athletic director tells all

And I think I took the job for the wrong reason. Matt Brunson had asked me a question, and he asked, "If you take the money out of it, would you leave DeLand to come to Crestview?" And I said, "No."

I want to say this about these kids here. I disagree with what a lot of people say about these kids — they are great. They are phenomenal and I love everyone of them like they are my own kids.

But at the time I don't I think I came in here and it was heart and soul sunk into this thing. I think I had some doubts coming in.

I was just a guy that took a job.


Q: Have you told any Crestview football players to transfer to other schools in Okaloosa County?

A: False — absolutely false. The only thing I told those guys was, "I don't care what you think your intentions are right now, but whatever you are going to do, you have to get your bodies ready to play football next year."
