There’s actually two members of the Boise State football team that wear #33, so despite today actually being 20 days out from the season, we will actually be highlighting…both of them. Because there was a bit of a mix-up 13 days ago! So, with that out of the way, let’s get to…
#33, Tyler Crowe, RS Senior, Running Back
Weight: 218 lbs
High school: Skyview High School
How’d he get to The Blue™?
A local product, Tyler Crowe earned high praise his senior season, being named the 5A SIC Player of the Year, and a 2018-2019 Idaho Press Sports Star Football Athlete of the Year. Playing both offense (as a running back) and defense (as a linebacker), he raked in the stats with 69 tackles, 1830 rushing yards, 495 receiving yards, and 25 touchdowns.
Despite the eye-popping numbers, recruiting noise stayed pretty quiet around Tyler, but it caught some eyes at Boise State. After growing up a BSU fan, Tyler jumped at the chance to play for his local team, and accepted a preferred walk-on slot on Signing Day 2019. Tyler earned a scholarship in September of 2021. More on that a few sections below…
There’s not a lot of great options for a lookalike for Tyler, but if you ignore the hair, the eyebrows…the eyes…and parts of the nose…you get actor, Dave Franco. Kinda.
T Crowe has racked up some decent rushing stats as a reserve since being on scholarship. 217 yards and a TD across 2021 and 2022. That’s a very healthy 6.02 average yards per carry! He’s also had three catches for 45 yards and 10 special teams tackles in that timeframe.
Also…take a look at his high school highlights. Dude was a monster.
The Broncos have what is known as “an embarrassment of riches” at the running back position. Among them, Crowe is a very dependable ballcarrier and a bit of a fan favorite. So, while he won’t lead the backfield in carries, he will definitely get some touches and will absolutely make the most of them.
Is he on Twitter?
Yeah, and the man has a legendary pinned Tweet.
Completely made up fact
In the offseason Tyler moonlights as a security decoy doppelganger for Weird Al Yankovich, but he lets his hair return to its natural color when football season is set to resume.
