Bulyca enjoys Apple Cup

It wasn't the way Casey Bulyca envisioned his season ending, and to be fair, it's probably not the way any high school player wants their senior season to play out. In a three-way mini-playoff, Bulyca and the Woodinville Falcons won one game, but lost the crucial final that would have sent them on to state.

"Our season went OK," the 6-6, 295-pound Bulyca told TheInsiders.com. "We had to play in a three-way mini-playoff to go to the state playoffs. We ended up beating Redmond, but lost to Lake Washington by a touchdown. Other than that, our season went well.

"I think I had a pretty good season. I thought I played pretty well most of the year."

He played despite an injury to his labrum. "It really hasn't bothered me much since early in the season," Casey said. "I had to wear a brace all year, but afterward it got a lot better."

He needs to see a doctor before deciding between surgery or rehabilitation.

Bulyca spent this past Saturday at Husky Stadium. "It was awesome," he said of his Apple Cup experience. "It was a great atmosphere. It was good to see U-Dub win and play like they should have played all year. The coaches were excited. They were proud of the way their team played."

He mentioned Tyler Ashby and his Woodinville teammate, Matt Tuiasosopo, as a couple of guys he talked to while at the game.

Does Casey have any insight into Matt's recruitment? "I couldn't tell you, to be honest," he said. "I'm pretty sure he doesn't know yet."

But Bulyca knows where he's going. "I'm still committed," he said. He'll be taking his official visit to Washington the weekend of December 5th.
