Schools like Miami, Memphis, Mississippi State and others recruited the Lady Cougar standout, but Crawford’s heart was in Tuscaloosa with Head Coach Kristy Curry’s program.

Gabby was joined by her parents Octivia and Eddie Crawford, other family, friends, administrators, coaches and teammates for her signing in the Munford High School Library.

I’m really thankful for them,” Gabby said. “If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be here today. I love my track teammates, basketball teammates, the practice boys’ team. They always push me to do better.”

Munford Lady Cougars Head Coach Steve Poindexter gathers a team of male students to run a scrimmage game against his players to improve their skills. Gabby said the work in those games, drills with her basketball teammates and conditioning in Munford Head Track Coach Bernard Ivie’s program has help make her Alabama worthy.

Crawford will join the Southeastern Conference program and compete against the likes of Tennessee, Mississippi State, Kentucky and defending National Champions South Carolina.

Crawford has enjoyed a stellar career at Munford with various All-District and All-Region honors. She’s been named league MVP and helped the Lady Cougars reach Sub-State last season.
