Standing in at 6-feet and weighing 150 pounds as the quarterback who directed the Anderson County attack in 1968, Crawford would look almost frail compared to current signal caller Jacob Russell's 6-4, 215-pound frame.

"If Coach (Ray) Hager had run a shotgun offense like a lot of teams do today, we could have really put up some numbers," Crawford says.
