During games, he and the other coaches go onto the field and help place the kids for plays. They get almost as much exercise running around the field as the kids do.
Crum explained that coaching can be a challenge sometimes.
"Some of the kids just run around, so you have to be patient with them," he said.
He has not had any trouble with any adults, though. "The parents don't create any problems."
There wasn't a specific reason Crum chose to work with the Panthers over other teams in the league, but he's glad that he did. He likes getting to know the kids and teaching them how to play football.
"It's been a lot of fun, and I'm glad that I did it," he said.
Crum doubts he'll help out with any other youth sports teams this year, but he definitely encourages others to volunteer with youth sports or clubs.
"The whole experience has been a lot of fun," he said.
