Claude Clarence Crabb (born March 8, 1940, in Carmel, California) was a superb natural athlete. He was a star football quarterback, basketball player and track sprinter at Monterey Union High School 1954-58.

College career[edit]

Crabb played college football at the University of Colorado after transferring from the University of Southern California and was drafted in the 27th round of the 1962 AFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills.

Professional career[edit]

Crabb is a former American football defensive back in the National Football League for the Washington Redskins (1962–63) where he made six interceptions in 1962, Philadelphia Eagles (1964–65), and the Los Angeles Rams (1966–68).[1] He is perhaps best known for returning a blocked punt to the 5 yard line in 1967 Rams versus Green Bay Packers game, setting up the game-winning last minute touchdown in a game the Rams had to win to stay in contention for the Coastal Division title (which they won by defeating the Baltimore Colts the following week).
