In a game that produced 82 points and 11 touchdowns in the final three quarters, it’s hard to imagine a defensive play impacting the outcome.

But Randall might not be imagining a chance to play in the state quarterfinals today if not for junior Haiden Battin’s interception Saturday late in the third quarter of the Raiders’ 49-33 Class 5A Division I area playoff win over El Paso Andress at Happy State Bank Field at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Quarterback Jameis Winston trotted onto the water-logged field at Doak Campbell Stadium with aspirations of a second consecutive national championship on the line. The top-ranked Seminoles were in a tight game, once again, and needed their Heisman winner to make a play.

He made several.
