John-David “Duke” Crouch of Largo, is FHSAA Bowling State Champion 2017,
And his team the Tampa Bay Heat finished 4th. Duke bowled the 2 day State Championship on Nov. 1st & 2nd and then that week end 4th & 5th, Bowl another 2 day Florida State Youth Landen Tournament against to top bowlers for all over the State of Florida and won again. He has won and done so much more for youth Bowling in the Tampa Bay Area, as a Certified coach, team mate, working with Special needs bowlers, time in training, as well as travels all over the country Bowling in tournaments. He also wants to get a college degree and go into the Air Force as and officer. I feel his athletic abilities along with his sportsmanship and attitude would make him a candidate for consideration for sportsman of the week, or some recognition, kids like him are not to common. He is a junior and home school at the Tampa Bay Heat program.
