Navarre Raider History – 2014

2014 Navarre Raider - Seniors
Navarre Raiders - 2014
The Raiders started the 2014 season with six straight wins to include an exciting overtime win over Feleipe Franks and his Wakulla War Eagles and a lightning shortened game against Crestview in Week 3.
 
The only setbacks for Navarre in the regular season came at Niceville in Week 7 and against Choctaw in Week 8. The Raiders would then have convincing wins over Dothan and Gulf Breeze to finish at 8-2 and 1-1 in District 2-6A.
 
Navarre went on the road for round one of the playoffs at Escambia. Things were not looking good for the Raiders as they fell behind 17-7 at the half, but they got the offense going and outscored the Gators 37-13 for the win.
 
Round two saw Navarre face off with conference foe Choctaw. The Raiders jumped out to a 14-7 lead after one, but it was all Indians after that as they scored the last 28 points for the win.
 
Navarre outscored their opponents 412-242 (the most points scored in a season up to that point).

Navarre Raider History – 2012 – First State Semifinal Appearance

2012 Navarre Raider Seniors

Navarre hired Head Coach Jay Walls in the off season. Coach Walls came to the Raider program from Tift County High School in Tifton, Georgia. Prior to coming to Navarre, he had a 103-71 record in 15 seasons while coaching at Suwannee High School (1997-2005) and Tift County (2006-2011) with 11 playoff appearances.

The first year head coach led the Raiders to a win over Washington in game one, before falling to Pensacola on the road in game two. Navarre would then run off an eight game winning streak with wins over Pace, Niceville, Catholic, Choctaw, Crestview, Fort Walton Beach, Mosley and Gulf Breeze to finish the regular season at 9-1 and 5-0 in District play. The Raiders qualified for their fourth playoff appearance.

In round one Navarre beat Pace for the second time on the season and then went on the road to knock off Milton in round two. In round three, Columbia would travel to face off with the Raiders for the Region title.

On the opening kickoff, Nick Benton would return the kickoff for a 85-yard touchdown, which had the Raider faithful up on their feet. Navarre QB Andrew Rieves led two more scoring drives in the first half as the Raiders jumped to a 21-0 lead before the Tigers clawed back to cut the lead to 21-14 at the half. Columbia tied it at 21 in third, but the Raiders added a fourth quarter score for the win and their first ever Region title.

In their first trip to the State Semifinals, Navarre hosted Gainesville. The Purple Hurricanes came to play on this night at they jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead. The Raiders would cut the lead to 41-19 after three, but Gainesville could not be stopped as they cruised on to victory.

Navarre finished the year with their first 12-win season and 11-game winning streak, as well as their first Region title and State Semifinal appearance. The Raiders outscored their opponents, 375-258.

Navarre Raiders

After leading the Raiders to their first Region Title game in 2010, year number four for Coach Lashley would be his last season at the helm of the Raider program.

2011 was an up and down season for Navarre. They started out with a win against Washington (a team they have never lost too), then lost back to back games to Pensacola and Pace. Bounced back with a big win over Niceville as Dwayne Carter rushed for 307 yards (a school record at the time) and six touchdowns (still tied for a school record).

Game five brought a loss to Catholic and game six the Raiders rallied from 23 points down in the fourth quarter to tie Choctaw, only to lose on a late field goal. Navarre rebounded for wins over Crestview and Fort Walton Beach to even their record at 4-4. Then, finished up the season with a loss at Mosley and their fifth straight win in the Publix Beach Bowl Cup against Gulf Breeze.

Raiders went 5-5 overall and 3-2 in the District 2-6A in 2011. Coach Lashley finished with a 22-21 record and Navarre’s first two wins in the State Playoffs.

Live for Today, Fight for Tomorrow, Live Strong!
Coach Lashley entered his third year after going 6-14 in his first two seasons and he was looking to put the Raiders on the map in 2010…he did just that.
 
The Raiders started out with a shutout win over Fort Walton Beach, then a come from behind victory at home against Walton. They fell to Catholic in game three, but were awarded a victory as the Crusaders had played with an ineligible player.
 
Navarre suffered a setback in game four against Pine Forest, but then ran off six straight wins (Crestview, Milton, Escambia, Pace, Tate and Gulf Breeze) to finish their first 9-1 regular season and earned their third Playoff appearance.
 

Went on the road in Week 1 and won their first ever playoff game in school history against Niceville. In Week 2, they headed back to Pine Forest and knocked off the Eagles with a late 90-yard drive led by QB Colton Kane as he finished off the drive with a 30-yard touchdown pass to WR Brad Leggett.

On the road once again in Week 3, where they faced off with the Lincoln Trojans. The game went to overtime tied at 13. Lincoln outlasted Navarre in triple overtime for the Region Title and ended the Raiders historic season at 11-2.

On January 28th, 2011, the Raiders lost one of their teammates…Ian Cole Lockwood. Ian had battled a brain tumor and was an inspiration to the Navarre program and to the entire Panhandle Region.

The Raiders would split their last four games, with two wins over Crestview and Gulf Breeze and losses to Florida High and Milton to finish the regular season at 7-3.
 
Navarre went through District play with a 3-1 record, making the State Playoffs for the second straight year. But their season would come to an end at the hands of Pace once again in a 55-13 setback.
 
Coach Olson turned the Raider program around and finished with a 30-29 record. He brought home Navarre’s first two State Playoff appearances as well as their first two District titles.
