Scott Crichton, the Tacoma Weekly’s 2009 high school football player of the year, and Jamal Byrd, the defensive player of the year, were among five Foss High School players to make official declarations to colleges this week.
Crichton, a 6 foot 4 inch, 245-pounder who played tight end and defensive line, will attend Oregon State University. Crichton, who was widely recruited, said he liked the atmosphere at Oregon State and was excited about playing in the Pac-10.
“It was just a really good fit for me. I am not sure if I will be playing offense or defense. I’m just excited to be playing at that level and getting a chance to do whatever they need for me to do.”
