  1. 1. When did you start playing football?

I started playing full contact football in 4th grade.

  1. What is your time in the 40 yd. dash and what’s your best bench weight?

I haven’t been timed in the 40 yard dash since freshman year, so I’m not sure. My best bench weight is 220 pounds.

  1. What is your favorite college football team and college football player?

My favorite football team is the Missouri Tigers, my favorite play might be Maty Mauk or Marcu Mariota.

  1. What is your favorite moment during any Landon sports event in which you played?

My sophomore year when we beat Bullis under the lights. We were huge under-dogs and the atmosphere was crazy thanks to our fans.

  1. What is your favorite course/faculty member at Landon?

My favorite, but hardest course at Landon was humanities with Mr. Botti and Mr. Swinehart.

  1. What is your favorite non-sports related activity–community service, music, painting, sculpture, photography, independent paper, debate, drama, poem, extracurricular activity, etc.?

My favorite non- sports related activity is hanging with my friends.

  1. What is your nickname (if any) and how did you get it?

I have a lot of nicknames. My last name is pretty long so a lot of nicknames come from that. People will call me Critt, TCritt, Critty, Critters, and stuff like that.

  1. Describe yourself in 3 words? How would your parents describe you in 3 words?

I would describe myself as nice, friendly, and respectful. I hope that my parents would say the same.

  1. What’s on your iPod?

A lot of rap, drake probably being the most played artist.

10.Tell us one thing (interesting) that your teammates do not know about you.

I’m the great great great grandson of General Robert E. Lee

 

It would be great is a faculty member, parent or student would be willing to write about the Bears’ cross country, soccer or water polo teams.
