No matter what someone gives you, you have to work with it.”

3. One of his favorite McDaniel memories so far? “Our triple overtime win [in football] on homecoming was fabulous, as was our big comeback against Franklin and Marshall in basketball,” says Casey, adding, “It’s not just the game so much as the fans.”
