Rick Davis profiles Chartiers Valley graduate Spencer Casson, who is now a standout basketball player at Seton Hill.
"The only person blocking Spencer Casson's success on the basketball court these days is, well, Spencer Casson.
Casson, a 6-foot-8, 240-pound redshirt freshman center, got off to a very slow start at Seton Hill but has rapidly established himself as one of the premiere shot blockers in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.
A Chartiers Valley graduate from Presto, Casson had a difficult time adjusting to the speed of play at the NCAA Division II level and played sparingly through the first six games. In four of those six games, he played fewer than 10 minutes and averaged just 9.5 minutes per contest.
"He was developing," said coach Tony Morocco, in his 12th season with the Griffins. "He was behind in certain areas physically and he was learning the system and learning how to do things to compete at this level. He was just a young kid, very, very green.""
