    Funeral services for former coach Mart Crawford have been set for Friday morning at 11 a.m. at Cason Monk-Metcalf Funeral Home in Nacogdoches. Burial will follow in the Deadwood Cemetery in Panola County. Visitation is set for Thursday evening at Cason Monk-Metcalf Funeral Home, on North Street, in Nacogdoches.

    Crawford passed away Wednesday morning in Nacogdoches.

    Crawford spent 26 years as an assistant coach for the Lumberjack football team, as well as, coaching track and golf during his SFA career. Crawford also served as an assistant athletic director at the university prior to his retirement in the mid-1980's.

    For the past 19 years, the SFA athletic department has presented the Mart Crawford Award to a graduating senior on the SFA football team that most closely reflects the traits for which Crawford is remembered - loyalty, dedication and a devotion to the SFA football program.

    The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mart Crawford Scholarship Fund at the SFA Alumni Association.
