When Tyrell Crosby arrived at Green Valley High, the football team was dismal, a last place bunch that finished 2-9 and 3-8 in his freshman and sophomore years.
That was before Crosby blossomed into a mobile, athletic 6-5, 290 and started paving the way with pancake blocks. Under new coach Brian Castro, the team went 9-2 in Tyrell's junior year, and colleges started stopping by the 6th period weight training class.
As seniors the Gators suffered a 1-2 start, but held it together to make it all the way to the Nevada State Championship game. In one game Crosby turned in 18 pancake blocks.
A stone-cold assassin in pads, Tyrell Crosby is friendly and easy-going out of uniform. "I have a good switch," he said, a year-round athlete who both loves competition and likes people (A.J. Jacobson, twitter.com photo).no comments
