UALR senior walk-on Ted Crass taking on leadership role with young Trojans

UALR senior guard Ted Crass has a unique perspective heading into the 2012-2013 season.

Crass spent the majority of his time as UALR's top manager under Coach Steve Shields. He continued to work hard, not only at his job but at his basketball skills, and Shields rewarded him late last season by elevating him to walk-on.

Now, he's UALR's only senior on what will be a very young team. It might be difficult for a senior walk-on to be a team leader, but Crass isn't a typical senior or walk-on. He knows what the coaching staff expects out of the players. And he's doing everything he can to get the Trojans back to the NCAA Tournament.
