KU walk-on Jared Casey's Applebee's commercial features a nod to his 2-point conversion catch
Entering last Saturday's final walk-through for the KU-Texas game, Kansas football walk-on Jared Casey had no idea that his life would suddenly be so busy in the coming days.
But there he was, after becoming a star following his game-winning, 2-point conversion catch, making commercials, doing all kinds of media sessions and still waiting for the reality of it all to sink in.
Wednesday, at KU's regularly scheduled player availability session, Casey talked about the whirlwind few days and his first dabbling with acting. He said he never was even in any kind of school play growing up and noted that, because his acting chops were a little raw, the whole experience of making a commercial for NIL partner Applebee's took a long time.
Here, in case you haven't seen it, is a look at Casey's Applebee's commercial, which was filmed in Lawrence earlier this week.
