THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING MARCELLUS CASEY
Marcellus Casey is the team chaplain of the Kansas City Chiefs. He was raised in Chicago and Kansas City, and both of his parents played a big role in helping him fall in love with God and people. Growing up with a father who worked for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes gave Marcellus an inside look at sports ministry, and in both high school and college, he was elected by his peers to lead the FCA Campus Huddle.
Marcellus played football for the Northwest Missouri State Bearcats under Coach Mel Tjeerdsma. It was there that he led Bible study for the team his freshman and sophomore years, before taking on the full-time role of team chaplain as a junior and senior.
After graduating in 2005, Casey was hired to be the full-time FCA campus representative at the University of Illinois. As a chaplain, he directly ministered to the wrestling, baseball, basketball and football teams. His ministry to coaches and athletes at Illinois was closely connected to the leadership of Illinois football head coach Ron Zook (2005-2012), and men’s basketball head coach Bruce Weber (2004-2012).
Casey is married to his high school sweetheart, Stephanie, and they have three daughters (Salem, Cora, Vivienne) and one son (Ralphie). They live in Kansas City, Missouri.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Marcellus Casey about his season with the Chiefs, the chapel services and Bible studies he’s been able to have with players and coaches, and what he hopes to share for his Super Bowl chapel the night before the big game.
