Casey selected for IFCA Hall of Fame
MANILLA -- Longtime IKM-Manning and I-K-M football coach Tom Casey, Manilla, was recognized in this year's state football program as a future inductee into the Iowa Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Casey, along with Lonnie Powers, Greg Thomas and Brian Wilken, will officially join the IFCA Hall of Fame during a coaches clinic ceremony at Prairie Meadows Casino and Hotel, Altoona, sometime in February or March, according to Casey.
A 1973 high school grad of Cumberland & Massena, Casey has put together a storied 40-year coaching career in the community since earning his degree from Peru State in 1978. He was an assistant coach at Manilla for seven years and since then has fashioned a 33-year record of 220-117 as the head coach or co-head coach at Manilla (1 year), I-K-M (21 years) and IKM-Manning (11 years).
Casey has helped guide 13 teams to the playoffs during that time, highlighted by I-K-M’s Class A state title team in 2006.
