The Warren Center, a nonprofit agency providing professional evaluations, therapy services and support to children with developmental delays and disabilities is delighted to announce that former Dallas Cowboys star Tyrone Crawford will serve as the Celebrity Host at the highly anticipated 30th Annual Fantasy Football Draft Night. This event, scheduled to take place on August 18, 2023, at The Westin Galleria, promises an unforgettable evening of sports, entertainment, and philanthropy.
“We are beyond excited and extremely grateful to have Tyrone Crawford serve as our celebrity host at this year’s milestone event,” says Fantasy Football Draft Night Event Chair Phyllis Stone. “Mr. Crawford is a Dallas Cowboy legend and with his support we know we will attract even more popularity and proceeds from what is sure to be an unforgettable evening.

Hailing from Windsor, Ontario, Tyrone Crawford first made waves on the football scene at Catholic Central High School, where his multifaceted skills shone as a running back, outside linebacker, and kick returner. His exceptional talent earned him a scholarship to Boise State University, where he dominated the field as a defensive end and was honored with the prestigious title of first team All-Mountain West Conference for his outstanding performance.
In 2012, the Dallas Cowboys recognized Crawford's immense potential, selecting him in the third round (81st overall) of the NFL Draft. Notably, Crawford etched his name in NFL history as one of only two players from Essex County, Ontario to grace the professional league. Over the course of nine seasons (2012-2020) with the Dallas Cowboys, Crawford solidified his place in the team's defensive core, amassing an impressive record of 194 tackles and 25 sacks, making his mark as a pivotal force on the field.
