~Nice little piece on Craft...~Craft attended Liberty-Benton High School near Findlay, Ohio and graduated valedictorian of his class. He was the Ohio Division III player of the year his senior year (2009-2010 season).[1] He averaged 26 points, 7 assists and 8 rebounds as a senior with 70 steals (3.2 per game).[2] His freshman year he was the starting point guard for their state runner-up team. In his four years, his teams went 88-5.[3] In football he was a two time All-Ohio selection and was the Ohio Division V player of the year (2008 season).[4] During his junior year his team finished state runner-up in Division V football. In three years of football Craft accumulated over 11,000 yards of total offenses, passing for 6,800 yards and rushing for 4,700 yards both school records. He had a career 73.7% passing percentage. He was the starting quarterback for three years opting out of football his senior year to focus on basketball.[5] In those three years his teams had a 38-4 record. During Craft's high school years he played on the All-Ohio Red AAU basketball team, with future Ohio State teammates Jared Sullinger and J.D. Weatherspoon, winning three consecutive National Championships. They were the only team to win the AAU Nationals at 3 different age levels.[6] While growing up Craft's father, John Craft, stressed the importance of defense and how it was more important to be a good defensive player than offensive player. When Craft was in 2nd and 3rd grade, his father, who coached the junior high basketball team, let him join defensive drills during the team practice. One of such drills that Craft remembers as grueling was getting into a defensive stance, and slide back and forth across the foul lane while holding onto bricks.
