105 days to kickoff of the 2020 High School Football season for the Navarre Raiders as they will travel to Gulf Breeze on 21 Aug 2020.

105 games ago – Navarre 56, Niceville 33 (2011)

The Raiders (2-2) won a big district match-up with the Eagles. Both teams put up 14 points in the first quarter, but Navarre would outscore Niceville in a wild second to take a 42-27 halftime lead. The Raiders added two more scores in the fourth to secure a 23-point win.

Navarre had troubles running the ball in the first three games of the season, but that was not an issue on this night as RB Dwayne Carter broke the school record with 307 yards on 25 carries. This record would stand until 2016, when it was broken by his younger brother, Michael. Dwayne also found the end zone six times on the ground (also a school record, tied with Michael).

QB Dusty Jones contributed 150 yards passing and two touchdowns through the air and 93 yards on 13 carries. WR Brad Leggett was his favorite target with 6 receptions for 129 yards and two scores. The Raiders amassed 428 yards rushing and 578 yards of total offense in the game.

LB Devin Colonel was the leading tackler with 15 tackles (8 solo/7 assists/sack) and DE Connor Brantley would add 8 tackles (6 solo/2 assists/2 TFL/sack).

105 – solo tackles in a career – Tre’Von Allen (2007-09)

Navarre leads the overall series, 8-3.
