It was said George Crane was the most versatile athlete in his class. Three letters in three different sports-basketball, football, and track-seem to confirm that. He was a conference discus champ, a member of the conference all-star team, and co-captain of his own Tiger team. As president of the undergraduate "D" Association, Crane had the honor of presenting a "D" blanket to Mrs. Ira Blackstock the day the stadium was dedicated. The NFL's Eagles and Lions expressed interest in his future, but he chose medical school instead. The Dayton, OH native now lives in Durham, NC, where he is associated as a faculty member or associate, specializing in dermatology, at the Duke University Medical School and University of North Carolina Medical School.
