Crawford-West Leaves Miami

Miami sophomore goaltender Brandon Crawford-West has decided to forego his final two years of eligibility and leave the school, according to head coach Enrico Blasi.

In the April 1 announcement, which cited Crawford-West’s “personal reasons” for his departure, RedHawk head coach Enrico Blasi said, “We fully support and respect Brandon’s decision and realize how tough it was for him to make. We wish him nothing but the best in the future as he explores other options.”

Crawford-West started 32 games during the 2004-05 season, with a record of 11-16-5, a goals-against average of 2.48, and a save percentage of .917. The San Diego, Calif., native was benched more than once throughout the season for reasons that Blasi would not discuss.
