Casey Case is one of the best players from the Orlando, FL area in the Class of 2020.
The 6-foot-6, 195-pound Case is a dynamic quarterback that plays for the Winter Park High School Wildcats.
Case has earned plenty of accolades during his outstanding youth football career such as: NFA QB Dual 2017 Atlanta, GA - Nationally Ranked #5, Central Florida All-Stars 7on7 2017/2018.
Case is humbled by the recognition.
“I'm thankful for every opportunity that I get to compete and sharpen my skills,” Case said. “ At this level, the competition is tough, but these experiences challenge me to be the best that I can be and to grow from each opportunity.”
No matter the opponent, on each snap Case is determined to give it his all.
Case is going all out.
The motor is always at full throttle whenever Case steps between the lines.
“I have to lead and encourage my team to play at the top of our potential and bring my best personal focus and performance every time we take the field,” Case said.
Case has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the gridiron. Case tells why he enjoys the game of football so much.
“I love working out every day with my teammates and pushing each other to be better,” Case said. “In the end, what I love the most is seeing all our hard work pay off on Friday nights.”
Case has learned many valuable lessons from playing football that he applies to his everyday life.
The main one is applying perspective to all situations.
“It has taught me that nothing worth having comes easy,” Case said. “You have to put in the hard work to get the results that you want.”
Case recalls his favorite football memory.
“I don't really have a memory of my life without football. I've been playing since I was seven years old,” Case said. “I think some of my best memories have been the relationships that I've formed with my teammates and coaches along the way.”
Baylin Trujillo is Case’s personal trainer. Trujillo explains the best parts of Case’s game.
“My first training with him was a group training with four other QBs and I knew instantly he had the tools to be special. We first got into contact via Twitter and he told me he wanted to train to take his game to the next level. I watched his film and noticed so things that we touched on in our first training and he is extremely attentive to what I was telling him,” Trujillo said. “His strengths are his natural strong arm, his body size, and being very coachable! Casey transferred to Winter Park after playing under a pro style offense that ran the ball 95 percent of the time. Now he is in the gun, throwing the ball 95% of the time. Timing is now everything.”
Case takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Case makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.
“As a person of faith, I'm challenged to consider others before myself. I try to think about what those around me need, and find ways to help them reach for their own personal best,” Case said. “We've been given the gift and talent to play this game that we love, let's do it to the best of our ability and believe that every obstacle that we encounter can be overcome.”
Trujillo raves that Case is the consummate teammate that every locker room needs to be successful.
“He is well regarded by his peers due to his dedication to his craft and the effort he puts forth not only on game day but in practice and workouts,” Trujillo said. “That attitude is contagious to his peers and rubs off on them.”
Case is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.
“My coaches have always encouraged me that character matters, and reminded me that I will be a husband and a father many years after my football career is over, so I need to make wise choices and be a man of integrity,” Case said. “They tell me as the leader of the team I have the responsibility to be the thermostat, I have to be the same player whether we are winning or losing, I can't let my emotions ride the highs and lows of the game.”
Trujillo is an advocate of Case’s capabilities.
“He is the Quarterback for Central Florida’s No. 6 ranked team, Winter Park Wildcats; currently 7-1. He recently took over the starting job after senior QB Gino English, another one of my QB trainees, hurt his back. Casey Case has done a nice job into stepping into his new role as a junior,” Trujillo said. “It is easy for him to see the field with his frame. Plus his ability to throw the football.”
In addition to making clutch plays, Case also has a high level of football IQ as well.
Case has excellent football awareness that puts him in position to thrive.
“He has a great understanding of the position because of all the quarterback work he has put in,” Trujillo said. “He’s only going to get better as he continues to study.”
Case is on the grind to perfect and hone his craft in any way possible.
“Casey is very positive and is always ready to work. The fact that he reached out to me and wanted to start training right away shows he’s willing to be great,” Trujillo said. “He has a special gift as a quarterback and I’m excited to see him progress over the remaining course of this season and in the future.”
Case is constantly striving for greatness in everything that he does.
“My first priority is to honor my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in all that I do while striving to be a good leader on and off the field,” Case said. “I hope to maintain my solid academic performance as well, and ultimately achieve my goal of playing college football.”
Before the pros, Case dreams of making an impact at the college level.
“I don't have a specific college that I'm set on,” Case said. “But I'd like to play where my skills set can contribute the most to the program that I'll be a part of.
Case patterns his style of play under center after this Super Bowl champion.
“Carson Wentz is an inspiration to me. He plays for my favorite football team, the Philadelphia Eagle,” Case said. “I look up to him because he's a proven leader on and off the field and I see similarities in how we play the game.”
Case lists his favorite subjects as history and literature.
“I enjoy reading and learning from the experiences of others,” Case said.
Trujillo explains the areas of improvement that will take Case’s game to the next level.
“Casey is a pocket quarterback but can also run the ball if needed. In my training with him, I focused a lot on his feet with drop steps and rolling out to get him to learn how to use the proper body movements when delivering the football on the run,” Trujillo said. “He has such a gifted arm but little technique stuff will take that talent to the next level. Winter Park’s QB coach, former UCF QB Steven Moffett, is also an excellent coach who knows what it takes to get him to reach his full potential.”
Trujillo believes the sky is the limit as long as Case continues to stay hungry.
“I am blessed to be his QB coach and to be a small part in Casey Case’s life and I cant wait to see what he does throughout the rest of his days at Winter Park,” Trujillo said.
