Lawrence Crock is the first criminal to take of the identity of the Sportsmaster.


Lawrence Crock was once a skilled professional athlete, skilled in many sports, who was kicked out of professional sports after intentionally injuring an opponent.  Aching for revenge, he became a master criminal who used specially designed sports equipment to commit crimes.


Very little is known of Lawrence Crock's youth or background.  For most of his life Lawrence was an incredibly skilled athlete with a strong drive to win but despite his strong skills, he was still willing to play dirty to get ahead.  When he seriously injured another player in a football match, he was banned from all professional sports.
