"This is for Casey."
("Lacrosse legend Gary Gait gives Casey Powell permission to wear '22' on his jersey.")
As we noted in today's Prospectus, Saturday marks the final (Ed Note: HOME) game of Casey "The GAWD" Powell's playing career. Our man @OrangeLax did a great post about Casey's upcoming game that you should check out as well. Powell's playing career has been extraordinary and he has been a star for so long, that it was only fitting he was the face of first major lacrosse video game.
We wanted to do our part in celebrating Casey's wonderful playing career, so we compiled some of the best Casey videos we could find on Youtube into this post. These aren't necessarily highlight videos, but mostly older off-field clips that demonstrate Casey's electric personality. It's easy to understand why he is such a fan favorite after all these years. Hope you enjoy the videos.
