Player Spotlight: Chance Casey
Chance Casey enters his senior season at Baylor at the safety position. After starting his Baylor career at cornerback, Casey moved to free safety last season. The 5'11", 180-pound Crosby High School product started the first 5 games last season at cornerback, then started 2 games at free safety before suffering an injury that kept him out the rest of the season. Casey tallied 48 tackles and 6 pass break-ups in only 8 games last season. Prior to 2011, Casey started 6 games as a true freshman at cornerback for the Bears in 2009 recording 36 tackles, 6 pass break-ups, and 2 interceptions (1 returned for a touchdown. In 2010, Casey missed 3 games due to an injury, but still started 9 out of the 10 games he saw action in a cornerback. He tallied 48 tackles, and he snagged 1 interception during his sophomore season.
With experience at both the corner and safety positions, Casey will enter his senior season as one of the most veteran players on the squad. Casey did start two games at safety last season, and then got injured. Depending on how strong Casey is coming back from an injury, he could compete for that starting job in the secondary for the 2012 season. Casey has good speed and solid footwork, but he must stay healthy to be an impact player this season. Casey has missed significant playing time due to injuries the past two seasons.
