September 23, 2019 "Deepest sympathy to your family. My dad (Dick Elgin) and Hop grew up together in the bottoms. My dad had many stories about the two of them. When I read that he had passed I thought I bet the two of them are chatting up in heaven about the Buckeyes and many other sports. God bless your family.

Coach Cassady now belongs to the ages. He was one of Ohio's finest guys.
