Chris Casher savors only senior game

Chris Casher, an FSU commit, didn't have a lot of time to prepare for his first (and only) game of his senior season. Jamie Newberg has the story.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- It was important for all the participants in Thursday night's Under Armour All-America Game to perform well. They all wanted to show off against their peers on national television.

But to one player, it was more important.

Chris Casher didn't play a down of football during his senior season this past fall. Instead, he watched from the sidelines and worked in the classroom. Casher, who transferred from Mobile (Ala.) Faith Academy to Mobile Davidson High School last summer, had to get things squared away with the books. That meant no football for the nation's No. 3 defensive end.

"It hit me hard when we were driving over and I saw the dome," Casher said of the UA Game's venue, Tropicana Field. "I told Mario [Edwards] earlier, this is my only game of the year. It's personal to me. I don't want it to be lost. I want to play well and win in a great fashion."
