Lansdale Catholic standout and Gatorade Player of the Year in Pennsylvania, Gabby Casey Interview

Gabby Casey set the career scoring record at Lansdale Catholic and was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in Pennsylvania.  However, the 5'9 senior guard is more proud of what her team accomplished this season.  The Crusaders won the Philadelphia Catholic League championship and the PIAA-4A title for the first time in program history.  "That brings so much more joy than the points and all the other awards," emphasized Casey.  Lansdale Catholic earned state gold by holding off Blackhawk 53-45 at the Giant Center in Hershey.  Casey racked up 28 points, 16 rebounds, and 3 steals.  She shot 13-20 from the field.  The Crusaders ended the year at (29-2).  "It's been unreal honestly. We're feeling a lot of love from the community and from the school. It's been great," said Casey.  She finished her career with 1,740 points.  Meghan O'Brien set the previous school record of 1,259 back in 1994.  Casey is much more than just a scorer.  In addition to her 21 ppg., she averaged 8 rebounds, 4 steals, and 3.5 assists.  Lansdale Catholic beat Archbishop Wood 50-47 in the PCL Championship.  "It's one of the best leagues in the whole country. Every game you're gonna get a hard-fought game. The competition is like no other," stated Casey.  SV Sports' Paul Roberts asked her about committing to Saint Joseph's.  Casey replied, "Their coaching staff was amazing. I always wanted to go somewhere where I'd feel comfortable and loved."  Location was a big factor in her decision.  Casey wanted her family to be able to see her play in college.  "They've had the biggest impact on my career. My mom, she's my biggest role model. I've always tried to follow in her  footsteps," said Casey.  Her older brother, Jimmy, plays football at Florida State.  Casey also had fun talking about her favorite musical artists, basketball players, and teachers.
