Casey Suchocki is an engineering student from Tuscaloosa Al who's motivation to compete on ANW came from his grandfather.
Casey first competed as a Walk-on In American Ninja Warrior 8 where he finished the Atlanta Qualifying course placing 12th. In the city finals, Casey put up a strong performance, making it all the way to the 9th obstacle, The Clacker before failing, he did place 5th aand moved on to the national finals. On Stage 1 he failed the Jumping Spider when he didn't get a good landing during dismount, and fell backwards into the water.
Casey returned to compete in Daytona in American Ninja Warrior 9, and even though he fell on the Wingnuts in qualifying, he proposed to his girlfriend Ashley, who accepted.
