Place in History - West Texas State's football program might not have produced many NFL caliber football players, but it certainly produced a number of big names in pro-wrestling. Dory and Terry Funk both went there and they recruited and trained them all: Ted DiBiase, Tito Santana, Stan Hansen, Tully Blanchard, Manny Fernandez, Bobby Duncum Jr. and others. Scott Casey can be added to that elite group and they turned him into a good regional talent. Casey was a good athlete, who really didn't have much else to do in the world. Casey just never seemed to have what it took to become anything past an upper midcarder and he periodically left pro-wrestling. When he wasn't a cowboy in the ring, Scott Casey was a hairdresser, a security guard and even a gigilo in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, Casey was never able to fully live up to his potential and largely spent his career as a supporting player when he had all the ability to go further. Since retiring, Casey has hooked up with Nick Bockwinkel and helps train wrestlers for the UWF in Las Vegas. One of the forgotten regional stars of the 80s, Scott Casey was a good worker who just never made it to the next level.
