    Eric Crouch is giving pro football yet another try.

    The 2001 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Nebraska is among 70 players participating in a minicamp this week for his hometown Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.

    Crouch was a 2002 third-round NFL draft choice of the St. Louis Rams. The Rams projected him as a receiver, and he walked out of training camp and announced his retirement after not being given a chance at quarterback.
