He is currently a free agent who last played center for the San Francisco 49ers, helping the team reach Super Bowl LIV in 2019. Garland resigned with the 49ers in 2020, started five games at center, but was placed on the injured reserve list with a calf strain the same year. He began his football career as a cadet at the United States Air Force Academy from 2006 – 2009, as a starter for the Air Force Falcons. After graduation, while stationed at Scott Air Force Base, he signed with the Denver Broncos and remained on the team’s Military Reserve players list from 2010 to 2012. He went on to play for the Atlanta Falcons from 2015 – 2018. When he separated from active duty in May 2012, Garland joined the Colorado Air National Guard as a Public Affairs Officer with the 140th Wing stationed at Buckley AFB in Aurora, Colorado. He currently holds the rank of captain and fulfills his military obligations between NFL seasons.

Jack Crawford is a retired defensive end who was first drafted into the pros by the Oakland Raiders in the 5th round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Dallas Cowboys, Atlanta Falcons, Tennessee Titans and Arizona Cardinals. Crawford grew up near London, England and moved to the United States in 2005, intending to play basketball during his remaining high school years.
