Countdown to Kickoff – Navarre Raiders – 116 days

116 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.

116 games ago – Navarre 49, Milton 20 (2010)

The Raiders (5-1) returned home to the friendly confines of Bennett C. Russell Stadium in Week 6. The wheels were starting to turn for this Raider program…a decisive 49-20 win over Milton.

But that was not the story of this contest…a young man from Navarre was fighting for his life (brain tumor). The Doctors told him that he would never take the field again to play for the Raiders. Do you think that this prognosis stopped Ian Lockwood from playing his final game as a Raider…you are right, it did not!

The Raider coaching staff designed a couple of plays just for Ian and he responded as he scored the final two touchdowns of his lifetime, at home in front of Raider Nation. See, Ian was a fighter and he would never go down without a fight.

116 – points scored in a career – Gatlin Casey (2011-13)
116 – total solo tackles in a career – Adam Hamilton (2007-08)

Navarre leads overall series, 12-8.
