115 days to kickoff of the 2021 High School Football season for the Navarre Raiders as they will host Fort Walton Beach on 27 Aug 2021.
115 games ago – Lincoln 34, Navarre 33 (3OT) – Region 1-4A Final (2010)
Raiders (11-2) went on the road for the third straight week in the State Playoffs. Lincoln would score a couple of touchdowns on long plays; but Navarre matched them point for point.
Sophomore Johnny Robinson-Pettus had one of the best one handed interceptions I had ever seen to deny one Lincoln drive and RB Dwayne Carter was running all over the Trojan defense for 180+ yards behind an outstanding performance from the offensive line.
The Raiders had a chance to win the game in regulation as they drove down to the Trojans 30-yard line with 1:12 left on the clock and two timeouts. The Navarre faithful was smelling their first Region Title; but Lincoln’s Javorius “Buck” Allen stepped in front a Colton Kane pass in the end zone that would eventually send the game into overtime at 13-13.
Navarre would be up first in the first overtime and quickly scored. Lincoln would be faced with a fourth and nine and somehow QB Ronald Butler would elude the Raiders pass rush and tie the game at 20-20.
Lincoln would score a touchdown to start the second OT; but Navarre’s Carter would find the end zone on third down to tie the game at 27-27 and send it to a third overtime.
Raiders scored in the third overtime; but unfortunately the extra point was blocked. On Lincoln’s first play, the Navarre defense would sack Butler setting up a second and twelve. The Trojans scored on a fade route on second down and added the extra point in a thrilling 34-33 victory to end the Raiders dream season.
Navarre outscored their opponents 419-247 in 2010; which was the first time a Raider team had scored over 400 points in a season.
