Bakersfield, CA - Former Renegade Football standout Tyrone Crawford is all set to take on his ninth season in the National Football League (NFL) as a defensive end for the Dallas Cowboys. Currently listed at 6'4" and 290 lbs., Crawford was a 3rd round draft pick by the Dallas Cowbyos in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Originally from Ontario, Canada Crawford started his career at BC in 2008 when he was named All-Conference as a freshman. In 2009 he was named a JC All-American as well as first team All-State and first team All-Conference. He then transferred to Boise State where he spent his final two seasons of collegiate eligibility. In 2011, his senior season, he was named First-Team All-Mountain West.
In 2012 with the 81st pick of the NFL Draft, Dallas selected Crawford and he has remained a Cowboy ever since. Just into the 2019 season he suffered an injury requiring season-ending hip surgery and was placed on injured reserve. He has since been activated and is listed on the Cowboys official depth chart on the first team defense heading into week one of the 2020 season.
The Cowboys are set to begin the 2020 season playing on the road against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday (9/13). The game will be the first NFL game played in the newly constructed SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles which cost upwards of $5-6 billion and took almost four years to build. The game will kick off at 5:20 PM PDT and is the NBC Sunday Night Football game of the week.
