116 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.

116 games ago – Navarre 20, Pine Forest 18 (2010) – Regional Semifinal

The Raiders (11-1) would travel 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 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 the drive alive. QB Colton Kane would then find WR 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.

116 – total solo tackles in a career – Adam Hamilton (2007-08)
116 – points scored in a career – Gatlin Casey (2011-13)
116 – yards passing in a game – Sage Chambers – Gulf Breeze – Game 8 (2017)
116 – yards passing in a game – Marlon Courtney III – Escambia – Game 12 (2018)
116 – yards passing in a game – Zach Marquis – Crestview – Game 6 (2020)

Raiders are 88-28 in their last 116 games and the overall series with Pine Forest is tied, 4-4.
