I love this part:
...few weeks ago Michael Crabtree picked up his cell phone and called Deion Sanders and asked him if he ever used to dream.
Not about money or cars or women or fame, but about making plays and scoring touchdowns.
“I’d been doing that a lot,” Crabtree said, “and I wanted to find out if it was normal. Deion said it was.”
That’s why Crabtree wasn’t surprised when he made the game-winning catch with one second remaining in Texas Tech’s 38-33 victory over Texas on Nov. 1. He said he’d visualized the play countless times in his sleep.
Some snickered at Crabtree’s comments, but Leach believed every word.
“I bet he thought it through thousands of times,” Leach said. “That’s the thing about Michael: He’s not doing this for a bunch of attention or trophies. Michael just loves football at a level that most players don’t.”
Leach said one of his favorite all-time quotes came from Crabtree after the game that night.
“Someone asked him about the next opponent and about playing in all these big games against ranked teams,” Leach said. “Michael just said, ‘I never think about any of that. All I see are balls in the air.’”
Damm I can't wait to see him in 9ers red catching TOUCHDOWNS!!! Can the season start tomorrow!! We got ourselves a player my friends!!!!
