Hometown NFL hero Crawford brings joy to kids at football camp
There was no doubt Tyrone Crawford was a mountain of a man towering over a sea of children swarming around him.
But the hometown NFL hero — a six-foot-four, 285-pound defensive lineman for the Dallas Cowboys — was having a blast Saturday at the University of Windsor while hosting Windsor’s Finest Football Academy for the fourth straight year.
“This feels good, it’s our fourth year and we love it,” Crawford said. “I never got to participate in a camp like this. That’s why I always want to come back and do it for the city."
"Elite Sports Society and NFL Canada helped organize and oversee the camp. “This is an opportunity for these kids to find a new mentor — whether it’s Tyrone, people he brought here from the Cowboys or other players,” said Alex Guerrero of Elite Sports Society, who also was a teammate of Crawford’s at Boise State."
