While many of his Beverly Hills High classmates traveled to far-away vacation spots this summer, Willie Crawford instead motored to various locations between Westwood and Century City as part of his job with a messenger service. It was Crawford's job to deliver in the summer, and it will be his task to deliver in the fall. The difference is that starting Sept. 11, Crawford will be asked to deliver for Beverly Hills High School, and his work place will be the football field.
