As Tampa Natives go, Rick Casares was among the very best of the best. The greatest athlete to come out of Hillsborough County, he was All State, All American and All Pro. He was a once in a lifetime competitor who's size, speed and tenacity was exceeded only by his kindness, humility and grace. Ahead of his time, he is now for the ages. RIP #35, you leave behind a stadium full of admiring fans from Tampa to Chicago. The Tampa Natives Show will be dedicating a broadcast in memory of Rick.
