"The first year, we had 25 kids come out that wanted to play but were academically ineligible," Crawford said. "About half came back the next year and they were eligible. Last year, we lost two and this year, we lost two, but at this point, they understand. We try to make sure the kids keep a 2.0 (GPA) and make sure they pass all their classes. Since we started the football program, we've been very successful."
