Army Sgt. Nicholas Casey died during an Afghanistan mission in October 2008, a victim of a suicide bomber. Casey’s brother Scott has shared a letter Ohio State defensive end wrote to Casey’s family this year:
“The fact that I am able to get up without questioning my security makes me unbelievably proud to be an American and thankful to have brave heroic people like Nicholas watching over me,” Bosa wrote.
Bosa, the younger brother of the Los Angeles Chargers’ Joey Bosa, is expected to be one of the more notable college players in the 2018 season.
