Crowell wins National Championship at South Dakota State

For South Dakota State head equipment manager and former Lebanon Yellowjacket Aaron Crowell, dreams became a reality on Sunday afternoon. The South Dakota State Jackrabbits defeated the North Dakota State Bison by a score of 45-21 to claim their first FCS title at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. Crowell has been through the ups and downs as an equipment manager but said the feeling of winning a National Championship was an experience unlike anything else. “It really is tough to describe,” he stated. “I think I looked at the clock with 10 minutes left, and it hit me that we would win. That’s when all the emotions started coming out, hugging everywhere. For me, this is something that I have been dreaming of for a long time." For more on this story see the LCR
