One of the state's top two sport athletes is Lancaster (Calif.) Antelope Valley's Andre Crenshaw. Not only is Crenshaw a very talented football player but he's a big time track athlete as well and won a state title a year ago in the long jump.
Crenshaw, 5-10, 170 pounds plays running back and linebacker for the Antelopes but is being recruited as a running back or receiver by colleges right now. Crenshaw was an All-CIF performer as a sophomore and fought through an ankle sprain all last season to earn all-league honors.
At the SoCal Nike camp, the athlete clocked a 4.62 in the 40, jumped 33 inches in the vertical and did 15 reps on the bench. He had a season best 24'5" in the long jump and won the state title with a leap of 22'8". He definitely plans to double sport in college.
"All of the schools that are recruiting me right now have told me I can play both sports," the No. 76 player in California said. "Football is my first priority but I like track as well and would like to keep jumping as long as I can."
On the recruiting front, Crenshaw is still sitting on one offer and is hearing from a few other schools as well.
"I've gotten calls from Arizona, Boise State, Idaho, Oregon State and UCLA," Crenshaw said. "UCLA is still my only offer but Arizona is close to offering as well. Those are my two favorite schools with UCLA being my favorite since they're my only offer right now. Still, I'm in no hurry to make a decision and would really like to take all five trips if I can. I've thought about the fact that if I wait too long, my ride might not be there later on but I'm just not ready to make a decision and want to go through the recruiting process to be sure I'm making the right decision."
