Casey played third base for the Cougars and was a team captain as a senior in 2013. During Azusa Pacific's 47-12 season in 2012, Casey had career-highs in home runs (6), RBIs, (30), and hits (59) to help the Cougars clinch a Golden State Athletic Conference championship and a berth in the NAIA Playoffs. Brendan is the third of Coach Casey's four sons. Casey works with corner infielders and hitters.
In the two seasons Casey has spent with the team so far, the Jumbos have gone 65-18 and won two NESCAC titles.
