Despite not having a formal ceremony, Duncan High School announced its annual Crossman Award winner Monday. This year they honored Javion Dangerfield as the 2020 winner.
Dangerfield, one of five nominees this year for the award, took home the honor. Other nominees included Vanessa Cassidy, Aiden Scott, Karliegh Ramirez and Ian McEntire.
Dangerfield serves on Student Council as the sprit committee chairman and participates in Fellowship of Christian Athletes, acts as Senior Class Vice-President and takes part in National Honor Society and Leadership.
Having a 4.0 grade point average, Dangerfield secured a football commitment to the University of Central Oklahoma to play for the Bronchos.
Some of the honors Dangerfield has under his belt include receiving the title of Outstanding Junior Boy, taking part in Honor Society and most recently Dangerfield earned the Class 5A-District 1 Offensive Player of the Year.
Playing football and track for the Demons, Dangerfield said once he signed his letter of intent, he is proud to head to UCO for college and is excited for the trip ahead.
“I always had them in my mind and then they were on me early which meant a lot to me and it was just a good fit for me,” Dangerfield said. “I went there and felt at home. I just feel like it is the best place for me to play football and I will be involved more. It is a great college, great campus and a great location.”
In his last two seasons with Duncan Football, the Demons made a big turn around when they won nine games in his junior season. He signed earlier this year with his friend Jaxon Gregston in front of family and friends.
Dangerfield said those seasons in his junior and senior years were some of his fondest memories.
“Starting off not good the last two years and then coming out junior and senior year playing that good means so much to me. I know I put in a lot of work and so many other people on our team put in some work,” Dangerfield said. “It showed off on the field and obviously even now because I’m going to further my career along with Jaxon too, so all the hard work that we put in of not wanting to lose and wanting to get that action, it paid off. It just means the world to me that we turned the Duncan program around.”
Dangerfield is the son of Chasiti Coulter and Jeremy Dangerfield and will attend UCO in Edmond in the fall though his major remains undecided at this time.
