NO. 18 CROWLEY’S TY’VON GRIFFIN
The Crowley Gents have made huge strides over the past two seasons under coach Josh Fontenot.
A big reason for that, as well as perhaps the No. 1 reason many are expecting big things again this fall for the Gents, is workhorse running back Ty’Von Griffin. The 5-11, 195-pounder plays even bigger than his size. A year ago, he carried the ball 262 times for 1,687 yards and 27 touchdowns for Crowley High.
Griffin is a returning first-team All-Acadiana performer who has the power-rushing ability to help an offense protect a lead by running out the clock, as well as the big-play skills to be the feature back in a track-meet scoring showdown.
The Gents enter the season in the newly formed District 3-4A, and get the benefit of playing both DeRidder and Leesville at home this season.
One of the road games will be week three at Cecilia, which will allow Griffin to square off with Cecilia’s speedster Raymond Calais in an elite showdown of All-State caliber backs.
