Career Sacks & Tackles Mount Up as Nick Blows Up The Spartans...

Nick Kasa lowers the boom with one of his 3 sacks last Friday night against Greeley West

In what several Lightning fans thought was possibly his best game as a varsity player, Nick Kasa literally flew around District 6 stadium in Greeley last Friday night. Despite playing every offensive and defensive snap Nick ended up with 11 tackles and 3 sacks and seemed as fresh in the 4th quarter with the game on the line as he was in the 1st half.

At half time Larry Kasa (Nick's father) knew it was a special night. "He's on fire tonight..." Larry said on his way to stock up on hot cocoa. The Lightning ended up posting their third straight shutout.

Nick's 11 tackles gives him 180 for his career. With 2 games plus the playoffs ahead Nick needs 35 to break the career Lightning mark of 214 held by Cody Kincaid (2000-03). Nick added to his career sack mark with 3 Friday night giving him a total of 29.

Nick Takes Second Official Visit

Nick Kasa's Saturday following the Lightning 6-0 win against Greeley West started early.... At 6:00 AM he was off to Gainsville, FL to spend the day with the University of Florida football familyand watch the Gators beat LSU Saturday night at the Swamp.

Will Nick end up a Gator, Duck, Bear, Buffalo, or Fightin' Irish? Stay Tuned...
