Crouse to play football at Pitt State

May 9, 2007

McLouth High senior Danny Crouse has signed a letter of intent to play football at Pittsburg State University this fall.

MHS coach Harry Hester said Crouse will be a preferred walk-on at PSU, which means he won't receive scholarship money initially, but could in future years.

Crouse, 5-foot-11 and 240 pounds, played both ways for the Bulldogs last fall, manning a spot on the offensive line and at linebacker. He also served as McLouth's long snapper on special teams.

He was tied for the team lead in tackles with 21 before a broken arm sidelined him for the final three games of the regular season. He also helped McLouth's run-heavy offense average 353 yards per game prior to his injury.

Despite the shortened campaign, Crouse was voted a spot on the Delaware Valley League second team and was named to the Lawrence Journal-World's Super 25 all-area team.
