Pregame introductions were almost over at St. Margaret’s High when the announcer got to JSerra’s starting junior forward and said, “Number nine …. CR-A-A-A-A-BY!”

That’s it. That’s all he said. Just that one word.

After that CIF SoCal Regional game, one in which Crabby finished with a goal and an assist, a JSerra supporter walked on the field and yelled, “He only needs one name like Pele and Ronaldo and all of the soccer greats.”

There’s no doubt Crabby (Juan Gutierrez) has got some skills. He is the Register’s 2009-10 boys soccer player of the year.
