(KFVS) -

Time to dial up number 35 on our list of Heartland football players who have made it to the NFL ranks.

This time the honor belongs to former Dexter Bearcats High School star Gary Crane.

The standout linebacker took his game to Jonesboro, Arkansas where he made his mark on the college gridiron for Arkansas State.

In 1969 he became a member of the Denver Broncos in the National Football League.

From the Bearcats to the Broncos, a salute to Gary Crane.
