Bio

Michael Crabtree is a sixth year wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers. As a standout at Texas Tech University, he won two Biletnikoff Awards as the nation’s top receiver and was also named an All-American twice.

Early Years & College
Crabtree was born and grew up in Dallas, TX, playing football and basketball at David W. Carter High School. He played quarterback for the Cowboys football team, throwing for 870 yards and rushing for 646 yards as a senior. His strong play on the basketball court led to scholarship offers in both sports, but he decided to play college football at Texas Tech.
After redshirting in 2006, Crabtree instantly became a star for the Red Raiders, breaking multiple records, including most touchdown catches ever by a freshman with 22. He entered the 2008 season as an early contender for the Heisman Trophy along with teammate Graham Harrell, and after another strong season earning All-American honors, he finished fifth in Heisman balloting with three first place votes. He met with head coach Mike Leach and draft board advisors to discuss his future following the season, and decided to declare for the 2009 NFL Draft.

San Francisco 49ers
A stress fracture in Crabtree’s left foot prevented him from performing at his pro day, but the San Francisco 49ers made him the highest drafted Red Raider since 1965 by selecting him with the 10th overall pick. With the team and his representatives at an impasse regarding contract terms, Crabtree held out throughout the 49ers entire training camp and didn’t reach terms with the team until October 7, 2009. On that day, he agreed to a six-year deal and ended up leading all rookie receivers with 56.8 receiving yards per game.
In 2011, Crabtree set career-highs with 72 receptions for 874 yards. He finally surpassed the 1,000 yard mark while achieving career-highs in touchdowns and receptions in 2012, helping the 49ers advance to Super Bowl XLVII. A torn Achilles tendon during offseason training cost him several games in 2013, and he returned on December 1, 2013 against the St. Louis Rams. He ended up playing five games and catching 19 passes after returning from the serious injury.
