Liberty Athletics celebrated its graduating members of the athletics department during its fifth annual Athletics Cord Ceremony, last Thursday evening.

During the event, Alan York spoke with several of the honored student-athletes, including football's Ethan Crawford. The rising senior has completed his undergraduate degree in exercise science, which he plans to use during his career as a high school strength and conditioning coach and teacher.

The native of Augusta, Ga., is set to return for his final year of eligibility in the fall where he will begin to work on a graduate degree while suiting up one last season for the Flames in 2019. Crawford has played in 26 career games for the Flames, starting 18 contests over the last three years.

Crawford is one of 110 graduating Liberty University student-athletes who will receive their degrees during Saturday's Commencement exercises at Williams Stadium.

Crawford was presented his cord during the special ceremony. The ceremony allowed Liberty's athletics administration to thank this year's graduates for their time and efforts at Liberty and present them with their athletics cord, which is designed to signify their time as a Liberty student-athlete.
