Mr. Casey Vick
Hey, I'm Coach Casey Vick. I graduated from Satsuma HS in 2006, then attended Faulkner State (Coastal) for pre-engineering. In 2008, I enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard where I first served in Hampton Roads, VA as the leading seaman and AtoN (aids to navigation) technician, boat crew member and engineer. After being promoted to Machinery Technician 3rd class (E-4), I relocated to the USCGC Diamondback in South Beach Miami, FL; performing drug and migrant interdiction operations as a crewmember, boarding team member, ship engineer and damage control lead. In 2013, I separated from service and enrolled at Everglades University in Boca Raton, FL. I graduated in 2015 with a BS in Aviation/Aerospace and moved back to the area. I spent some time working various retail and service industry jobs while searching for career opportunities in line with my field of study. In 2017, I went off the grid for over a month to hike 350+ miles of the Appalachian Trail before returning home to start what was supposed to be a temporary position at UPS, but ultimately led to delivery driving full time. I stayed on with UPS for over 5 years until I decided to seek an alternate career path. Fortunately, my mentor and former Varsity baseball coach, Jeff Ward, provided me the opportunity to enter into the education field as a paraprofessional, instructing the ISS program at Saraland HS. Additionally, I was given the honor and privilege to assist Coach Jordan Countryman in his epic vision to create the best high school wrestling program in the state. The 2023-'24 season will be my second season assisting, and the third season for Countryman and the Spartan wrestling program. Having already brought home both county and regional titles, as well as multiple individual state qualifiers and placers, the program has proven to be a great success. I fully intend on helping the Spartan wrestling program continue to attract young athletes that will have the opportunity to develop wrestling fundamentals and experience from a young age in orde to be competitive in the fastest growing sport in the Southeast.
