The role of the Athletics Director at Crandall University is to help players and coaches understand what personal and team success is. Part of this is helping individuals separate who they are from what they do. We believe that a win or a loss does not make us a better or worse human being. Sports were created for our enjoyment, not to give us value or tell us who we are.
