Kasey Carson is the son of Kevin and Kathy Carson and brother of 19 year old Kody who attends Kellogg Community College where he plays baseball.
Kasey’s dream of becoming a Division 1 athlete first started at the age of six practicing on the fields at the local elementary schools. Since then, Kasey has established himself on and off the field by becoming a three-year starter for the Beavers and setting many school records along the way. Kasey holds the school record for rushing yards in a season (1,897), rushing yards in a career (4,368), touchdowns in a season (27), touchdowns in a career (66), and career scoring (398). He tied the record for touchdowns in a game (5). Kasey was selected to All City three times, All Conference three times, All State Honorable Mention Running Back his junior year, and All State Running Back, captain and team MVP his senior year, while maintaining over a 3.5 GPA.
As the three-year starting catcher and captain of the varsity baseball team he received two All City, two All Conference, and two All Region Honors and team MVP. Kasey also lettered one year in basketball and one year in track.
Kasey thanked his parents “for all the love, support, and coaching over the years.” He thanked his brother “for being a great teammate and leader while bettering my skills and making me tougher on and off the field.” Kasey also thanked his Nana, Papa, Aunt Debbie, Uncle Dan and Uncle Tony “for driving hundreds of miles every week to see me play.” He also thanked his high school teammates and coaches, Ed Greenman, Mike Seedorff, Chad Dishaw, Dennis Stansbery, Alex Nicolich, Jeff Williams and Mason Converse “for their dedication to the game and making me a better person and football player.” Finally, he thanked Harper Creek athletic trainer, Christine Valenzuela for keeping him healthy over the past four years.
