"I love catching passes in the red-zone and scoring touchdowns," Tyler said when professing his preference for offense. He caught 15 balls for 215 yards, with four of those finding the promised land. In a rush-oriented offense, those numbers were good enough to make Casey the top receiver for the Warriors.
He was also named first-team all WesCo 4A as a tight end by the Seattle Times.
Physically, Tyler is one of the more imposing figures playing high school ball
in the greater-Seattle area. And he knows it. "I'm a lot bigger than most of the
other players out there, there's really nobody who is as strong as I am," he said
when asked about his play on the field. "I'm also a little bit of a talker. I like to
talk to quarterbacks, tell them that I'm going to get 'em." (laughs)
He currently runs a 4.9 40, benches 325 pounds, squats 400 and power cleans
Letters have come from Washington, UCLA, Notre Dame, Arizona State, Boise
State, Idaho State, Oregon, Oregon State and Penn State, among others. Casey
has some ties to the local school.
"I went to grade school with Jason Benn and I used to also see Kyle Benn and
Jon Minter around too," he said. I've always been a U-Dub fan, but I've started to
pay a lot more attention to them in the past couple of years."
Tyler attended Junior Day after being invited by the Husky coaches. "I met all the
coaches," he said. "Coach Gilbertson was funny. He was always
cracking jokes. He kept calling me skinny. He's kinda weird, but in a funny way."
Casey also laid out his camping schedule for us this summer. "I'll be going to our
team camp at Eastern (Washington) and also the Rick Neuheisel camp," he said.
"U-Dub is definitely my number one team so far."
