SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Bulldogs have that special something

Published: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 07:53 PM.

Tonight's game with Tate could turn out to be another classic in a line of classic games for the Bulldogs this year.

With seven state championships to their credit, the Aggies have a baseball tradition that is second-to-none in Northwest Florida. Crestview, nor any other high school baseball team from Okaloosa County, has ever won a state championship.

But the Bulldogs aren't playing the Aggie tradition.

Tate (21-6) won't be sending Hall of Fame pitcher Don Sutton or former Major Leaguers Travis Fryman and Jay Bell into the game against the Bulldogs.

Tradition is a great conversation piece, but players win the games.

Crestview's players have answered every challenge this year, and tonight, the biggest challenge of all awaits them.

I encourage everyone to come out and support the Bulldogs. Take my advice and get there early because it will be a packed house.
