Buccaneers News · To live in our hearts is to live forever: Armando Casas


O’Connell Athletics is deeply saddened by the loss of one of our own.  Armando Casas was the epitome of what it was to be an O’Connell Buc; selfless, determined and helpful to any and all.  There wasn’t a game he wasn’t in attendance for, and had a hand in every sport.


He enjoyed many activities, but especially coaching his children. He spent many hours being a volunteer coach for softball, basketball, soccer and football. He will forever be remembered for his dedication to the students of O’Connell High School.


Mando…we love you and will miss you dearly!  We know you will forever be with us shouting “Go Bucs!” as you always have.
