McCrabb, a defender, played under 19s football for Fitzroy but it was from Colac that he was recruited to Geelong. He only came close to playing a full season once, when he made 15 appearances in the 1990 AFL season.[2]

Following the end of his AFL career, McCrabb switched to Victorian Football Association (VFA) club Sandringham, playing in their 1994 premiership side.[3]
