He has played in the FIBA and IBL leagues. He attended Blue Valley North High School 2002–2006, and played collegiately at Wake Forest University (2006–2008) and the University of Colorado, where he studied political science (2008–2010).

His father Steve Crawford was a Major League Baseball pitcher.

After leaving professional basketball, Crawford entered law school at the University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Law, graduating in 2015. Crawford began his law practice with a local Kansas City law firm, Wallace, Saunders, Austin, Brown & Enochs, Chtd. After a stint with Wallace, Saunders, in 2018, Crawford began working for Chinnery, Evans & Nail, P.C., in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, as a transactional and litigation attorney.

High school

Crawford attended Blue Valley North High School in Overland Park, Kansas from 2002 to 2006, becoming the school’s all-time leader in points, rebounds and blocks. He averaged over 29 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.5 blocks in his senior season for the Mustangs. He was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in 2006 for the State of Kansas.


Crawford signed with Wake Forest University after high school and, after an unsuccessful freshman campaign, he transferred to the University of Colorado under Jeff Bzdelik. In line with NCAA Division I ruling, Crawford sat out the 2007–08 season. For his redshirt-sophomore season he tied a record for most points scored by a transfer in their first game with 14 points against Arkansas Pine Bluff. After up and down playing time, Casey averaged 5.5 points and 1.7 rebounds per game. He was fifth on the team in three-pointers made. His 2009–10 season resulted in similar up and down playing time, ending in averages of 4.6 points and 2.0 rebounds. He shot 45% from the three-point line and had career highs in points (20 points, vs. Nebraska 3/2/2011; and 5 rebounds vs. Colorado Christian). After his junior season, he decided to turn professional and left after graduation.


After unsuccessful pre-season tryouts with various NBA Development League teams (Reno Bighorns, Sioux Falls Skyforce, Iowa Energy), Crawford was signed in November by the Coventry Crusaders of the English Basketball League Division 1 team. Crawford averaged 25.8 points, 10 rebounds, shot 41.9% from 3pt, 51.6% fg, 1.4 bpg, 2.0 apg, 95% FT for the season with the Crusaders. After nine games with the team, the Coventry Crusaders closed due to lack of funds from ownership. In May 2011, Crawford signed with the Canadian team Edmonton Energy.

In August 2011, Crawford signed with the Japanese professional team Akita Northern Happinets of the bj league. In his first pre-season game, he tallied 30 points against the Chiba Jets.
