Ex-Tennessee OL Mack Crowder charged with child sex crimes

Usually, once your college football career is over, you either hope to get a job in the NFL or get one in whatever field you degree is in. It looks like a former Tennessee offensive lineman will likely be doing neither of those in the near future.

According to multiple reports, former Tennessee offensive lineman Mack Crowder was arrested in Florida and charged with multiple child sex crimes. He allegedly was in conversations with what he thought was a 14-year-old girl and attempted to meet her in person on Tuesday.

WFLA in Pinellas County, Florida reported via the Pinellas County Police Department that Crowder had sent four pictures of his “sexual organ” to the girl. The 23-year-old Crowder had also solicited the girl to engage in sexual acts on multiple occasions.

Crowder was arrested as part of the PCSO’s “Operation Wayfarer”, a sting operation which “targets adult males that are seeking out underage females on the internet for the purpose of engaging them in sexual activity.”

During his career at Tennessee, Crowder started 14 of his 22 appearances in the last two seasons. He was released on $50,000 bond Wednesday morning, so you can only hope that he can get the help he needs before his life spins out of control.
