The 2022 High School football season will get underway when the Navarre Raiders travel to Fort Walton Beach on 26 Aug 2022.
 
63 games ago – Navarre 36, B.T. Washington 20 (2016)
 
Michael Carter finished the night with 24 carries for 194 yards and five touchdowns and Bo Hering led the Raider defense with eleven tackles.
 
63rd win in school history – Navarre 20, Pine Forest 18 (Playoffs – 2010)
 
Navarre travelled to Pine Forest in Week 2 of the State Playoffs, a place that gave them their only loss of the regular season. The Raiders found themselves down late to the Eagles, 18-14, and the home team was driving to seal up the win. Louchiez Purifoy took over that last drive, but when he tried to fight for extra yardage, he fumbled the ball away and the Raiders recovered at their own 10-yard line…setting up Navarre’s 90-yard game winning drive.
 
With just over two minutes to play, the Raiders were successful on two fourth down conversions (both to Posey) to keep their drive alive. Colton Kane found Brad Leggett wide open across the middle of the field on a 30-yard scoring strike to give Navarre a 20-18 lead and their eighth straight victory; as well as the programs first 11-win season.
