On Memorial Day, 2019, the Hamilton West Football Program and Hamilton West Booster Club
announced the creation of a scholarship in honor of Jarred Crowley.
Starting next year, the Airman First Class [A1C] Jarred "Quick" Crowley Scholarship will be awarded to a graduating
senior football player from Hamilton West. All of us who know Jarred know how much he loved West football,
loved his teammates and friends, and just loved people and life in general.
Born January 23, 1985 in Trenton, Jarred graduated from Hamilton West in 2003. He was awarded the Freshman MVP (2000),
was a 3-Year Varsity Basketball and Football player; won the Hornet Varsity Athletic MIP Award (2003) and was Senior Year Homecoming
and Prom King (2002-2003).
After Graduating from Hamilton West, Jarred attended Kean University where he excelled in football
and was the recipient of Kean University's Football "Big 'Kat' Award" (2005). Jarred also played football
with many associations including the Middlesex Vikings.
Jarred enlisted in the United States Air Force on June 2, 2009 and was selected as the Student
Leader for his class earning "Red Rope" status. Following graduation, he ranked as an Airman First Class
and was assigned to the 8th Security Forces Squadron at Kunsan Air Base, South Korea. Jarred died on March
17, 2010 at the age of 25 due to injuries sustained in a vehicle accident.
The student-athletes eligible to earn this scholarship will be required to write an essay regarding life
and football and will need to embody Quick's spirit and characteristics that make him so special to us all.
We have the blessing of the Crowley family, and they will be involved in every step of this process,
including choosing the scholarship recipient.
Thank you all in advance for your support, thank you to the Crowley family, and thank you
Jarred for inspiring so many of us to be better people.
