Wide receiver Jamison Crowder has probably spent many hours this week figuring out accommodations for his family and friends for Sunday.
The Monroe, N.C. native said he is expecting 20 family members to be in attendance at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. In a Washington Times article, he said he had assured his mother that he was going to find tickets much closer to the field than the ones the Redskins provide.
The Washington Redskins announced Friday, March 13, 2015, the signing of free agent cornerback Chris Culliver. Here's a gallery of photos from his career.
While he'll probably have some Duke friends in attendance, he still has many connections from his hometown. In high school, Crowder was one of the big shots (he also played basktball), where in his senior year he caught 41 passes for 790 yards in 13 football games.
Crowder's current teammate and former one at Duke, Takoby Cofield, said he expects some of his family members to come, but was still managing how many were willing to make the close to four-hour drive from Tarboro, N.C.
And then there is cornerback Chris Culliver, who had prestigious career at Garner Magnet High School in Garner, N.C., where he totaled 147 tackles and four interceptions in his senior year.
He also played on offense when he could and was a standout track and field athlete as an elite sprinter before getting recruited to play at South Carolina.
He expects at least a couple of family members to see him in the stands.
"I've been in the area for a while," Culliver said. "North Carolina, we played a lot of good high school football down there. I've got a lot of good people coming to support. I definitely appreciate it."
