    #77 Crawford Ker played offensive line on Charley Pell's and Galen Hall's Great Wall of China from 1983-1984. Crawford's path to the University of Florida was full of twists and turns. Crawford Ker’s father was a Buckingham Palace Guardsman who immigrated to America in the 1960s, worked multiple jobs to pay for their ranch home in Florida, and eventually paid for a one-way ticket to Arizona for young Crawford to develop into a better football player. Crawford grew from a 145-pound kid in high school to a 200-pound JUCO All-American for Arizona Western (1981 and 1982), where he as a JUCO All-American. By the time “Big Daddy” transferred to Gainesville in 1983, he had bulked up to 280+ pounds and could bench 515 pounds, which made him a strong presence on The Great Wall of Florida. He was honorable mention All American and Second Team All SEC in 1984. He was a third round draft pick for the Dallas Cowboys, where he played from 1985 to 1990. Ker was the Cowboys' highest-paid offensive lineman from 1986 to 1990. He finished off his career with a year with the Denver Broncos and a year with the Detroit Lions before retiring in 1992. After his NFL career ended, Ker began investing in various restaurants in the Clearwater and Largo markets of Florida, with Ker's WingHouse Bar and Grill being his most successful endeavor.
