SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: A belated Christmas wish

Published: Monday, December 30, 2013 at 10:17 AM.

And, no, I didn't shoot my eye out, but I did manage to put a hole in the kitchen window that first long ago Christmas morning.

I have no BB guns, footballs or ping pong tables to give our local coaches and players. But, if I had the magic of giving certain gifts, I have a list of things I'd like to pass along to those players and coaches that are such a vital part of my job.

My first gift would go to the Crestview football team. I would give the Bulldogs another win over Niceville in 2014.

Along with the win over the Eagles, I would give Bulldog football coach Tim Hatten and his crew a District 1-7A championship and a long run into the playoffs next fall.

I also would give Hatten a long and productive stay with the Bulldogs.

My next gift would go to Baker football coach Matt Brunson and his Gator team. And I also would give the Gators a championship.

For Crestview volleyball coach and girls basketball coach Kathy Combest, I would give a little patience to deal with dreadfully young teams.
