90: Daniel Crosley, DL (Sr.) — Lamar
Crosley has gotten better and better since being inserted into the starting lineup as a freshman in 2016. As a sophomore, he led Lamar with 8.5 tackles for losses and 4.0 sacks.
Last year, he did it again and improved his numbers with 16 TFLs and nine sacks to go along with 58 total tackles and six quarterback hurries. Crosley was named to the All-Southland Conference Second Team.
At 6-foot-1 and 245 pounds, Crosley proved to be one of the better pass rushers in the conference from his defensive end spot. He recorded a sack in nine of the last 10 games in 2018.
Expect big things from Crosley in 2019. His improvement as his career has progressed proves he's in for a special season.
