Crowe graduated from Springfield in 2013. He started his college football career at Division II Tiffin University. He redshirted in 2013, transferred to Wittenberg in 2014 but was ineligible to play that season because his credits didn’t transfer. Last season, Crowe started eight games and had 47 tackles.
The Tigers are off this week and return to action at 7 p.m. Sept. 17 against Ohio Wesleyan at Selby Stadium in Delaware.
