The 6-foot-2, 230-pound junior running back and linebacker had led the Rams to a 13-1 record and a berth in the Class 4A state championship game at the time of his selection. Crouch has rushed for 3,142 yards and 31 touchdowns on 287 carries through 14 games, also recording 42 tackles and 14 sacks on defense. A First Team All-State selection, he also earned Conference Player of the Year and All-Charlotte Observer First Team honors.
Crouch has maintained a 3.31 GPA in the classroom. He will begin his senior year of high school next fall.
A devoted member of his church community and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Crouch has volunteered as a peer mentor in his school. “Quavaris Crouch has to be one of the most imposing running backs I’ve seen in a long time,” said Travis Witherspoon, head coach at Berry High. “He has tremendous balance and if you let him get to the second level there aren’t many players who can catch him in a foot race.”
