Mr. Crown will be missed. I have so many fond memories of him both in class and on the courts, but primarily on the courts. He was a great coach and mentor to so many. His coaching was underrated. In an era when UG sports were not successful overall (the Journal Times wrote an article detailing the Broncos' struggles), his tennis teams won multiple division and conference titles. Winning the rain-delayed and re-located Southern Lakes Conference championship in 1990 was a huge highlight of my high school career. Rest in peace, TC.
