The Omaha Nighthawks are giving Eric Crouch another shot at professional football. The United Football League signed the 32 year old and 2001 Heisman Trophy winner giving him one more chance to play football in his home town.
Crouch last played for the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL in 2006. “I’m excited to play again, especially in my home town,” said Crouch, a graduate of Millard North High School where he was a two time All-State selection at quarterback. “I’m grateful for this opportunity and I will do everything I can to make Omaha proud of their team.”
The Nighthawks start their season on the road against the Sacramento Mountain Lions on August 14, followed by their first home game of the season at TD Ameritrade Park on August 21 vs. the Virginia Destroyers.
