FORT WALTON BEACH – It was the Micah Reed Show Friday night at Joe Etheredge Stadium.

Splitting the tackles for a pair 70-plus-yard runs and routinely running over linebackers and making tacklers miss left and right, the Crestview running back rushed 31 times for 260 yards and four scores to lead the Bulldogs (3-4) to a 28-24 District 2-6A win over Choctaw (2-5).

“What a warrior,” Crestview coach Kevin Pettis said. “I’m so proud of Micah, who’s just been a workhorse for us all year.”

Reed said the praise, though, should be directed to an offensive line that opens up the holes for his highlight-reel runs.

“The offensive line played great,” said the senior, who had touchdown runs of 76, 74, 1 and 7 yards, the latter with 8:27 in the fourth that proved to be the game winner. “They opened up holes that were amazing and I just did my best to run through them.”

While the running back’s totals were headline worthy, Pettis, in address-ing his team in the post-game huddle, said, “The most important stat of all is 1-1.”
