Crowther was an equity broker in the south tower when terrorists attacked it 20 years ago. Instead of saving himself, he used his red bandana to get people’s attention and lead them to safety.

He sacrificed his life so that others could live.

Today, the Eagles will take the field against UMass wearing special uniforms to honor Crowther, and they’ll feature red as homage to the bandana he used on this day 20 years ago.

As I wrote earlier today, I always think about Welles Crowther on the anniversary of 9/11 because he represents what the terrorists could never take from us.

He represents the American spirit, resolve and selflessness that makes this beautiful nation an unbreakable one.

He willingly gave his life on September 11, 2001 so that complete strangers could live.

In my book, Crowther is not only a hero, but he’s the kind of person that makes me damn proud to be an American.
