This spring’s Maroon & White Game was different.
First, maroon was conspicuously absent from the Navarre High School players’ uniforms Friday at Bennett C. Russell Stadium.
Instead, Raiders dressed in white uniforms with black numbers scrimmaged against Raiders outfitted in black uniforms with white numbers.
“We saw some good blocking, and some good tackling,” coach Jay Walls said after the game. “The defense made some big plays, the offense made some big plays…we finished the week on a good note, now we’ve got to come back and get ready for two opponents” in Friday’s jamboree with Escambia and Crestview at Jack Foster Stadium in Crestview.
Navarre had its finest season to date last year, Walls’ first with the Raiders, winning 12 games and the Region 1-6A championship. Friday’s first viewing of the 2013 Raiders showed plenty of offensive potential.
