Life minus football: James Casey

By Paul Kuharsky

The AFC South blog asked Houston Texans fullback James Casey what he would be doing if there was no football in his life.

Here’s his reply:

“Well, I graduated from Rice with a triple major and finally got the degree done. I was drafted baseball-wise, so without using the baseball thing, I don’t know. I’d go to law school and try to become a lawyer or try to use the Rice network to maybe work in oil and gas here in Houston. I know this is the energy capital of the United States. I don’t know, it’s hard. If I was in oil and gas I’d probably do something like investment banking or private equity stuff. I have some friends who are Rice alumni who’ve gone into that end of the business. If I went to law school, maybe corporate law, maybe the front office of a baseball team. I’m not pigeonholing myself at this point, I’m just keeping all my options open after football is done."
