CASEY CAN - Casey Palmer gets it done on the hardwood at South Walton

Published: Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at 02:54 PM.

Against North Bay Haven, "Casey was our leading rebounder and he only played half a game. He's as good as you could want to coach," Davies said.

Palmer started playing basketball as a little kid in a recreation league in Birmingham, Ala. He was in the seventh grade when his family made the move to Walton County and he made the team at Emerald Coast Middle School, where he played for two years.

He made the team at South Walton as a freshman, and varsity the next.

"Basketball has always been my favorite sport," Palmer said.

But team interaction is what he likes best about the game.

"You have to work together to accomplish a task," Palmer said. "It brings the work ethic into mind and keeps you on task."

The Seahawks practice almost every day when they are not playing.
