We are so very excited for our new American Flag addition to the Malvern High School gymnasium and very proud to honor Coach Randy Casper! Thank to to all of our amazing donors who made this project possible and to Mike and Doug for installing everything in time for graduation. Gold Star to Dave Tucci and Tami Edwards Hulit for organization and communication for the project.
A new American flag hangs in the Malvern High School gym in memory of longtime coach Randy Casper.
Casper passed away on February 14 at the age of 61.
He was a 1978 Malvern graduate and a key member of the 1977-78 sectional champion basketball team.
Casper was Malvern's head girls basketball coach on two separate occasions, covering nine seasons. He was a girls basketball assistant coach for 12 other seasons, under Doug Wackerly and recently under Jason Powers.
Casper also helped in the boys program years ago as a junior high coach along with his good friend, the late Sam Simmons.
