We came up with our list of the Top 10 Football Players ever at Battle Creek Central and then we named the G.O.A.T – the Greatest Of All Time.
Then we asked you for your opinion in our Battle Creek Enquirer poll.
And after more than 3,400 votes, you have given us your answer.
According to the readers of the Enquirer, the Greatest Of All Time in High School Football at Battle Creek Central is Robbie Crockett from the Class of 1997.
Crockett had 2,068 votes for No. 1 to take our stop spot in the poll.
Jordan Dickerson was second on the list with Tony McGee third.
Robbie Crockett was a key member of a Battle Creek Central team that brought back some success to the Bearcats program after several years of coming up short, leading BCC to the playoffs in 1996 for the first time in nearly 20 years. Crockett was a two-time All-State running back who was big and fast and dominated most games he played in, putting him near the top of many Bearcats rushing records. When he graduated, Crockett was the career rushing leader with 3,265 yards and set single season records in scoring and yards and also held the top mark for a single game with 274. Crockett was one of the top prospects in the Midwest and went on to play four years at the University of Iowa.
The popular vote didn’t exactly agree with our list here at the Enquirer as we picked Tony McGee from the Class of 1967 as our No. 1 selection.
Crockett was No. 3 on our list.
