112 Days to Kickoff – Navarre Raiders

Elijah Appel
112 days to kickoff of the 2023 Florida High School Football season for the Navarre Raiders as they will host the Catholic Crusaders on 25 Aug 2023 at the comfy confines of Bennett C. Russell Stadium.
112 games ago – Navarre 28, Columbia 21 (Playoffs – 2012)
Navarre would get on the board rather quickly as Nick Benton returned the opening kickoff 85-yards for a score. The Raiders would push that lead to 21-0 early on in the second quarter.
The Tigers would get their offense rolling in the second quarter and cut the lead going to the half, 21-14. Columbia tied things at 21-all in the third quarter and kept it that way until midway through the fourth. Navarre’s Jay Warren scored from 6-yards out with 7:11 to play. The Tigers would then get inside the Raider 10, but their drive stalled out.
Columbia’s final drive ended as Navarre’s Elijah Appel intercepted a Jayce Barber pass, sending the Raiders to their first-ever Region 1 Title.
