Best Colorado State University Athlete (2001)

Rick Crowell
CSU Rams Football

A tough, lightning-fast senior from Chula Vista, California, Colorado State's 6'3" senior linebacker Rick Crowell led the Mountain West Conference last season with 125 tackles and was a first-team all-conference selection, as well as the league's most valuable player on defense. As the Rams compiled a 10-2 record and won their second straight conference title, Crowell led their fierce, stingy defense and in February was named CSU football's most valuable player.
