I was a 22 year old free agent defensive end from St. John's University in Collegeville, MN, in the summer of 1966 at the Miami Dolphins training camp. Mostly, the defensive players hung out together. But one day on the bus that took us to the practice field, Rick Caseres sat down next to me. I was pretty much in awe, but he set me at ease immediately. He didn't really know anyone either, and over the next several weeks while I was in camp we had several conversations on a range of topics, mostly football and life in the NFL. He treated me like a person instead of nobody rookie free agent. He probably never even noticed when I got cut from the team, but his decency to me made a huge impression and I never forgot it. Meeting him was the highlight of my time with the Dolphins. He was a terrific professional and a good guy who, unlike many of the highly paid rookies back then,had his head on straight and knew how to treat people.

I want to extend my sympathies to the family on their loss.

I had the honor to meet Rick at Jefferson in 1965. He taught me how to punt a football. Thanks for the memories, Rick. You certainly made football more exciting. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
