Sickles DB Crittenden switches to Hillsborough

Jakarius Crittenden, a starter last season for Sickles at defensive back, has transferred to Hillsborough High for his senior season, Terriers head coach Earl Garcia told the Tampa Tribune on Friday.
Sickles coach Brian Turner said Crittenden was dismissed from his squad earlier this year for a violation of team rules.
The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Crittenden made 34 tackles for the Gryphons during the 2011 regular season—24 of them solo—and produced two interceptions, knocked down four passes and had one sack. In addition, Crittenden saw limited action at running back behind his older brother, LaDondra, and that’s where Garcia says he needs some help this fall.
Garcia said his depth at running back took a big hit over the summer when senior Trevor Steinke suffered a broken leg during the USF Sling and Shoot touch football tournament. Garcia hopes Steinke can return by Week 2 of the regular season but in the meantime, he says Crittenden will be a big addition to his squad.
