Jason Croom named MVP of the Tropical Bowl
Before his Sunday scoring spree, Croom’s last touchdown catch in a game came at UT during his redshirt sophomore season in 2014. The 6-foot-5, 246-pound Georgia native was sidelined last season with a knee injury. He converted from wide receiver to tight end last spring and didn’t record a touchdown this season despite catching 21 passes for 242 yards.
Croom’s first touchdown reception for the National Team was a Hail Mary catch from quarterback Trenton Norvell to end the first half. His second touchdown came in the second half on a pass in the flat he took 15 yards to the end zone.
