Chambers making strides running offense

Sage Chambers dropped  back to throw early in the first quarter of Navarre’s game against Pensacola Catholic Friday night, and for a moment, he wondered if he was going to regret his decision.

“At first, I looked at it and thought “dang.” I didn’t think it was going to be a good ball,” Chambers said. But (Octavien Moyer) really helped  me out. I knew he was going to make a play.”

Moyer did indeed step up as the ball was threaded past a Crusader defender and found the hands of Moyer, who leaped up to make the grab in the end zone.

The 26-yard touchdown pass was the first of Chambers’ varsity career. It gave the Raiders a 14-0 lead with 7:18 left and helped  propel the Raiders to a dominating 57-14 victory on a muggy night at Bennett C. Russell Stadium.

Chambers, a sophomore, was making just his second start and  took a big step forward after going 4-of-7 for 14 yards in the opener against Dothan.

On this night, his first pass fell incomplete, but the next four were all on the money, including a 24-yard -scoring strike to Michael Sandle, who caught the ball in stride for a 21-0 first-quarter  lead.

Chambers finished 4-of-5 for 76 yards and did not turn the ball over. He was pleased with his effort as it helped the Raiders improve to 2-0 and  said he fed off  the energy of the fans.
