UPrep senior Cascius Facen is in Florida for the All-American Classic high school football game.
Facen is the only Upstate New York player invited to the game and is one of only two running backs listed on the Red Team roster for the game, which takes place Saturday at Stetson University in Florida at 5pm.
This season, Facen played running back and slot receiver as well as free safety and kick returner. He currently has the fastest 55m time in Section V Indoor Track as well and hopes to play football and run track in college, all while dealing with asthma.
He has two brothers on the football team. Practices are a family affair as his parents, grandparents and younger sister all show up for even the shortest of workouts.
His football coach, Kala Gause, is trying to build the Griffins around players like Facen, who take pride in being multisport athletes and good students.
