Bio Brief

Casy was raised in Nephi, Utah.  He grew up working on the family horse and cattle ranch. He also worked on a local dairy farm.  Upon graduation from Utah State University in 1993, he began a teaching and coaching career in Lake Los Angeles, California, then to Duchesne County Utah, and eventually to his hometown at Juab High School.  

In high school Casy was actively involved in 4-H, FFA, wrestling, and rodeo. He was the 1981 Juab County Beef Carcass Contest winner, 1982 Utah state 4-H champion horseman, 1984 state champion FFA individual soil judge, on the 1985 region champion wrestling team, and a 1985 NHSRA national finals qualifier in the bullriding. He also served on the 4-H youth council, FFA officer team, and in leadership positions with his church youth group.

At Utah State University, Casy was a member of the rodeo team, twice earning a year-end 3rd place position in the bullriding and finishing among the top 10 team ropers. Casy also competed in open and professional events, earning reserve champion in the RMRA bullriding in 1988.

Casy coached wrestling for 20 years.  He led Duchesne High School to a 5th place in the 2A classification in 1999.  Then at Juab Jr. High they won 5 region team titles,  finished 2nd twice in the 2A classification, and were 3rd at state in 3A.  Also, on those teams were numerous individual region and state champions.

Casy along with his wife Wendy and their children Dixon, Shad, and Kyleigh spend their time training horses, practicing for, and competing in rodeos.
