Raiders enjoy chance to play in all-star game

Late in the third quarter of the Subway All-Star Football Game Friday night at Blue Wahoos Stadium, the East was knocking on the door of the end zone.

Navarre’s Chris Williams had just picked up a couple of more yards inside the 10-yard line of the West, putting the East in a position to strike.

But on the very next play, the ball was picked off in the end zone, ending the East’s hopes of tying the game in a defensive battle that ended with the West holding on for a 9-0 victory.

Though the outcome wasn’t what the East had hoped for, this game wasn’t about winning or losing.

We know this game is just for fun,” Williams said. “We all had a good time.”

Navarre was well-represented in the 15th installment of this all-star game featuring top seniors from Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties. The Raiders had nine selected – tied for the most of any school — but only six played due to injuries and other commitments.

Williams was a late edition and it was well-deserved after he became the first since Michael Carter in 2016 to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.
