A quick runner with instant acceleration and outstanding change of direction, Crouch holds the NCAA record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 59 and the Big 12 record for most rushing yards by a quarterback with 3,434.

One of three players in NCAA Division I-A history to rush for more than 3,000 yards and throw for more than 4,000 yards in a career, Crouch won the Heisman Trophy as well as the Walter Camp Player of the Year and Davey O'Brien quarterback award last season.
