Chris Crawford

Class of 1993

Chris Crawford was a multi-talented athlete who was able to take his talents to the college and professional levels. In high school, Chris received varsity letters in basketball, baseball, and soccer. Chris was a quiet competitor with a tremendous athletic drive for success all throughout his career. Chris then took his talents to Marquette University where he received a full scholarship to play basketball and lettered for four years. Chris’ professional career involved playing two years of minor league baseball in the Houston Astros organization and eight years with the Atlanta Hawks. Throughout Chris’ many athletic accomplishments, he remained the same coachable, dedicated, respectful person whom his parents raised. Chris has continued to support Comstock Athletics through his involvement in camps, speaking engagements and attendance at school activities. Chris is a loving husband, father, son, brother and friend to many. My family and I are pleased to have been associated with Chris for many years.Written by John Holms
