Lost 4 out of 5 to Spencerville. Our defense looks very suspect. There were some flashes on offense. Rontae Jackson blew by the defensive back on the first drive and had a great catch to set up the first TD of the game. He is young but will be a great receiver with some reps in. Ward is pretty slow at QB. Probably the first time in at least ten years (excluding last year with the QB by committee) that Crestview has not had a great run threat in that spot. Gerardot and Brecht will be just fine in the offense. Maybe one more weapon needed but the offense will be fine. As for the defense, I'm not sure our outside LBs and defensive backs made anything happen. Very poor tackling/breaking away from blocks.Crestview has still to figure out the Spencerville run game. It was the same thing when I watched back in 2017 in person when Spencerville beat them at home. They didn't handle the pulling guards very well on defense.
I wouldn't expect Paulding to be a huge challenge, but you never know given the way the outside defense played Friday.
No one ever looks great against Spencerville. They eat clock and once they got up by two scores in the fourth, its hard to press and win. But, I'm not ready to call Crestview a middle of the road team as suggested, at least not yet.
