Donald "Ray" Crockett (born January 5, 1967) is a former American football player in the National Football League. He played for fourteen years in the NFL and earned two Super Bowl rings with the Denver Broncos as a cornerback. He played his high school football at Duncanville High School in Duncanville, Texas.[1] He played college football at Baylor from 1984 to 1988, and was inducted into the Baylor athletic hall of fame in 2008.[2]

In 2005, he co-starred (with Dick Butkus) in the ESPN reality show Bound for Glory, in which they both took on the task of coaching a high school football team.[3]

He appeared on the NBC game show Identity, as one of the twelve people whose identity the contestant had to guess. The contestant correctly identified him as a football player.

In 2008, he collaborated with Morgan Spurlock (creator of the show 30 Days and the popular film Super Size Me) to be on an episode of 30 Days. In the episode, Crockett spent 30 days using a wheelchair to get around.[4][5] He chose to be on the show after witnessing a paralyzing injury of former Detroit Lions teammate Mike Utley in 1991.[6] The rapper and producer Birdman is seen wearing his jersey in the music video of the song "I made it" by Kevin Rudolf featuring Lil' Wayne, Jaysean and Birdman.

He currently lives in Southlake, Texas, a suburb of Dallas.
