It was a transformative year for the Castle View High School football team — and a successful one. So much so that the Town of Castle Rock recognized the team with an official proclamation at the town council's final meeting of 2018.
Castle View reached the second round of the Class 5A playoffs. It was the team's first trip to the playoffs since 2014 and its first post-season win since 2011. The Sabercats, who finished with an 8-4 record, defeated Fountain-Fort Carson in the first round of the playoffs, before falling to Cherry Creek in the second round.
It was also Todd Casebier's first year as head coach. Casebier earned three separate “Coach of the Year” awards, one from Colorado Preps, one from Mile High Sports and a third from the South Metro League.
In the three years prior to the 2018 season, Castle View had twice gone 1-9. The Sabercats averaged three wins over the past six seasons.
Casebier told Colorado Community Media in August he'd focus on instilling a strong work ethic among Castle View players and work to “change how we approach the game in all ways, in-season and off-season.”
Casebier has a reputation for successfully rebuilding programs. He's also coached for Palisade, Montrose and Fruita Monument.
District 1 Councilmember Jess Loban commended Casebier for running programs in addition to football training that teach “young men to be responsible individuals.”
“We appreciate you,” Loban said Dec. 18.
District 3 Councilmember Kevin Bracken, who has coached Castle View's freshman football players, read the proclamation on Dec. 18 and offered comments.
“I was able to watch the progression of coach Casebier and his staff grow into a championship team this year, as far as Castle View is concerned and this proclamation is concerned,” Bracken said. “A very special season.”
