Foss’ Crichton player of the year

After Stadium had defeated Foss this fall, coach Jess Nelson said, “That Scott Crichton, man, he gets my vote for player of the year.” If Olympia’s Jordan Pine played in Tacoma, it would have been a toss-up for Nelson. But as it was, Crichton was named defensive player of the year among all the Narrows League coaches recently and was easily the top choice as Tacoma Weekly’s (TW) “Player of the Year.”

“Scott has all the physical tools and he just has great football instincts. He uses them, too. I don’t think I’ve ever coached a kid who keeps his head in the game every minute and covers the whole field so relentlessly,” Foss coach Ken Baker says.

“He will be just as good at the next level,” says Baker of Crichton, who has several Division I offers under consideration.

In what became a disappointing season for Foss, which lost its two biggest offensive weapons (Jamal Byrd and Julian Cruell) for a chunk of time in the middle of the season and lost three straight games in that span by a total of six points, Crichton’s play gave them a chance in every game either making interceptions, big tackles or key receptions when he played tight end on the offensive side of the ball.

“His range is what is so impressive,” Wilson coach Don Clegg has said of Crichton. “He’ll make a play anywhere on the field.”
