Brad Crawford's forte was speed, a talent he utilized to run back kickoffs and intercept passes. The numbers he produced earned him NAIA first-team All-America honors three times. Crawford anchored the Grizzlies' defense four consecutive years as a starter and had a natural instinct to find the football in midair. In 1975, he set the school record for interceptions in a season with nine. He was voted the top athlete in NAIA District 21 in 1976, and the number two-athlete in 1977. He was recognized as the team's Most Valuable Player three times and at the end of his senior year he held school career records for interceptions with 25 and kickoff return average with 25.9 yards. He was inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame in 1986. Crawford also starred on the track team earning four letters and was the team's Most Valuable Player three times. He is the school's co-record holder in the 100-yard sprint with a time of 9.9 seconds. After receiving his B.A. from Franklin, he went on to earn his M.D. from Indiana University. He became a dentist, practicing in Winamac, Indiana.
