Casey Stephenson was another important piece of the Prep O-Line that helped block for quarterback Kyle McCord, an Ohio State commit, this season. With Stephenson’s leadership, the offensive line is arguably the best in the state, having established itself as a dominant force the past several years and culminating in their recently winning the 6A title. Casey is a great young kid who is still looking at several Division I schools but has yet to make a decision. Whichever school that may be, they are going to be getting a great person and athlete.
What has been your favorite moment at St Joes Prep?
There isn’t one moment that is my favorite but just anytime I’m around my brothers is a memorable time.
How does it feel to bring the Prep 3 state titles in your tenure there and help put them back in the national spotlight?
It’s truly an honor to carry on the legacy that has been built by those who came before me.
What schools are you considering?
I’m mostly interested and Bucknell and Lehigh at the moment.
Who do you thank most for your success?
I thank my parents for always being there for me driving me to practice when I was younger and teaching the lessons I need to be able to handle myself the right way on and off the field. I would also like to thank both the leaders on the 2016 team and my coaches including Coach Infante, Coach Roken, Coach Sugden, Coach Stratz, and many others for building me, not only into the football player I am today, but a young man with values I couldn’t have gotten anywhere else.
What do you look to bring to the next level?
I look forward to bringing my same attitude to wherever I decide to go and being a dominant football player and a scholar.
What are your hobbies outside football?
I like to travel with my family in the summer and hang out with my friends down the shore.
Do you try to model your game after any Guards?
Quenton Nelson most definitely and also my all-time favorite Larry Allen.
Do you have any message for your coaches from either your past or your future?
A big thank you for all that they have done to better help me understand the game and life itself. I’m forever grateful for these men in my life.
