Drew Crabtree is a 2012 graduate of Ada High School and an extremely well-rounded young man. He not only excelled academically and athletically, but also musically. He participated in baseball and soccer and was named a scholar athlete all four years.

Drew was a member of the Language Club, National Honor Society and Quiz Bowl and was the Class Treasurer his senior year. While successful in many areas, from a young age, Drew was always especially drawn to music.

Drew was a member of the band and the Varsity Singers show choir group since his freshman year. He was also a leading cast member in many of the Ada High School musicals that were presented in the school’s beautiful auditorium.

Show choir is what Drew will miss most about his days at Ada High School because his passion is to sing and dance. This passion almost carried him to the Vandercook College of Music in Chicago, Illinois. Unfortunately, this private school had a large price tag and Drew had to adjust his future plans.

On an athletic note, Drew believes his greatest achievement was an exciting soccer game during his senior year. His team had the once in a lifetime opportunity to play at Crew Stadium in Columbus against the Riverdale Falcons. With only 90 seconds left in the game tied 0-0, Drew scored the winning goal to give his team’s record an exciting boost. Drew recalls the memory as “exhilarating” because it was the only goal he scored all season long.

Drew will attend Bowling Green State University and major in athletic training. He hopes in 10 years to be in graduate school and working in the Premiere Leagues as an athletic trainer. Music will still be a prominent part of Drew’s life as he auditions for the marching band at BGSU as a trumpeter.

Drew has participated in a variety of activities his entire life and at Bowling Green, he will be able to take advantage his two loves, sports and music. He is a cashier at the Ada Pool this summer and is the son of Todd Crabtree and Mary Archer.
