Dear coach Casey and Susan, I can't imagine a higher honor or more worthy recipients. Congratulations on the well deserved award. Keep up the good work and go Beavs !

Jeff Hanslovan

Congratulations Pat & Sue. A well deserved award, especially for Sue who has to put up with you, but supports you all the way. Your accomplishments on the field are great, but the guidance you give your players and everybody you come in contact with are greater. You have an awesome family and it makes me very proud to know you and your family. Good luck to continued success on and off the field.

Ron Scrivner

Congratulations from Bakersfield, California. Having graduated a Beaver and continued to follow the Beavs, and now having a son at OSU, it is always so wonderful to see OSU people so deserving get recognition. Thanks for all you do for OSU baseball AND the OSU family. It has been a pleasure watching the resurgence of OSU and it is always with the understanding that there are great people (like yourselves) behind all of it. John Wooden is a legend and now Pat and Susan Casey will be forever linked to this icon of sports/coaching/community. Keep up the GREAT work at OSU... we all truly do appreciate you both!!

I've been a season ticket holder since 2006. Following the team to Omaha that year was unforgetable.  Your leadership is unquestioned, your program is above reproach and you turn kids into men who understand the meaning of teamwork.  Oregon State is lucky to have you Coach Casey, I wish you and your family nothing but success in the future.

Congratulations on receiving this well-deserved award!

As an Alum, it is a wonderful feeling to be able to take pride in the fact that we have coaches and families who work so hard to ensure that OSU's student-athletes are given the skills to succeed not only in their chosen sport, but in life in general. 

Thank you both for all you do to help give OSU's baseball players the ability to excel both on and off the field.

Julian and Deanna McFadden

My name is Chris and I’m writing from Germany! Since the back to back championships, I’ve been a big fan of the Beavers. We watched you and your team playing in the World Series in ‘06 and´07 over here in Germany!

Good job and respect for what you have reached, and what great players came out like Darwin Barney (I’m a big fan of), Mitch Canham, Jordan Lennerton and others.

Congratulations to you and your wife for this award and all the best for the next season!


Congratulations Pat and Susan!  What a wonderful recognition of all the hard work you both put in on and off the field to make Oregon State University proud.  We hope you continue to coach and make a difference in the players lives, the community, and Beaver Nation for as long as you wish.  Once again, congratulations!
