Some of the nation’s best high school football players converged on AT&T Stadium in Arlington last weekend, then faced off in a high school all-star senior showcase on Monday afternoon – and Kilgore’s Davondrick Crowe was among them.

Crowe, a wide receiver and defensive back, and a senior at Kilgore High School, played on the West all-stars in the Blue and Grey All-American Bowl, the sixth annual game that allows high school football seniors another opportunity on a big stage to showcase their talents, with hopes that they might be noticed by college programs.

Crowe started the game at wide receiver and played the majority of the game; he had a 30-yard catch and also played on the defensive side of the ball. The East all-stars won the game, 41-15, but the score was not really what the game was about.

In addition to the 30-yard catch, Crowe, who was double-covered quite a bit, had an end-around, or reverse, for 6 yards. In addition, he played on special teams punt coverage, and during a tackle, Crowe forced a fumble.

He took time afterward for a few pictures, one of them with Tatum’s own Larry Centers, the former NFL fullback. Centers was the running backs coach for Crowe’s West all-stars team.

Davondrick, listed on the Blue-Grey roster at 6 feet, 179 pounds, is the son of Nathan and Yolanda Crowe of Kilgore. He overcame an injury as a junior to have a good senior year for the Bulldogs: 22 catches for 199 yards, an average of 9 yards a catch, and a touchdown. He also had four kick returns for 123 yards, an average of about 30 yards a return.

Defensively for his senior season, Crowe had 23 tackles, 11 solo, an interception, and two pass break-ups.
