Early years

Crockett attended Ely High School in Pompano Beach, Florida and was a letterman in football. In football, he garnered All-District and All-State honors.

Professional career

Crockett played three seasons with the Colts, (1995–1997). During his rookie year he only recorded 1 rushing attempt during 16 games during the regular season. Perhaps one of his finer pro career moments came during the 1995 AFC Wildcard game, where he started in place of the injured Marshall Faulk. During this game against the San Diego Chargers, Crockett rushed for 147 yards and scored 2 touchdowns to help the Colts win their first playoff game in 24 years. During his final two seasons with the Colts, Crockett started 16 of 21 games played, accumulating a total of just 464 yards on 126 carries (3.64 YPC). During this timeframe he scored a single TD.

After being released by the Colts, Crockett played for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1998 playing in 12 games, and starting two of them. The next year he was released and found his true home, the Oakland Raiders. Since being picked up, he has never missed a game and lead the team in rushing touchdowns twice. In 2003, he had seven starts at the fullback position. That year he led the Raiders with eight touchdowns. In 2001 he also led the Raiders in rushing TD's, this time with six. He had to wait a while to be the starter however, as Jon Ritchie was the main man for the Raiders until 2002.

On September 1, 2007 the Raiders released him. On October 10, 2007 signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and on October 23, 2007 they released him. He was re-signed on December 12 and was released again on December 19. He was claimed off waivers by the Dallas Cowboys on the same day. After practicing some with the Cowboys and being inactive for his first game with them, he was cut on December 24, 2007.

Personal

His brother, Henri Crockett, was also an American football player, who played for the Atlanta Falcons (1997–2001) and the Minnesota Vikings (2002–2003).[1]

Adept at cooking, Crockett specializes in frying turkeys and his favorite food is tuna casserole melt. His favorite film is Pulp Fiction. He also enjoys water skiing. Riding a bull is something he is looking to do in the future, and he is a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity.
