Harry Crump - Week 4 First Down Friday Night MVP

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - "I was just worried about getting my team to the win, leading my team," said Harry Crump. "We lost 3 years in a row by one point and I just had to do what I had to do."

Harry Crump led Mae Jemison to it's first win over Russellville in over a decade. He ran for 194 yards and scored 4 touchdowns.

"It was a big accomplishment, but we got to keep on moving forward."
"Those guys blocked well for him and he ran the ball and he ran hard. I was proud of him for having such a great night."

For Crump, football is more than just a sport, it's an emotional outlet and way for him to work through life's ups and downs.

"Football really lets me get it out and with my Dad passing when I was younger, it's the best thing for me."

"He's definitely some adversity in his life and he's overcome some tough situations, some tough things some of us have never had to been through," says Coach Kelvis White. "For him to be standing here today and be in a position to be successful."

Crump has been able to turn his frustration into opportunity.

"I have Arkansas, South Alabama, Troy. Really leaning towards Arkansas a lot, but just staying focused."

His drive has helped the jaguars stay on top, they have yet to lose a game this season.

"I've never been undefeated,  but it's a pretty good feeling. I don't take it for granted. We just have to keep moving forward and stay humble."
