"Crossen’s day started on the opening kickoff as he scooped-and-scored a fumble on the game’s opening kickoff. Racing down in kick coverage, redshirt freshman Skyler Matheson punched the football loose from VMI kick returner Mason Dermott where Crossen retrieved the loose pigskin and scampered 19 yards for the touchdown just eight seconds into the game. It was his first career fumble recovery.
Midway through the second quarter with WCU holding a 7-3 advantage, Crossen picked off an Austin Coulling pass down the left sideline and returned it 65 yards to the VMI 11-yard line, setting up WCU’s second touchdown and a 14-3 lead. Crossen’s third career pick was a part of a three interception day for the Catamount defense."
