Casey's Heart

Casey Rogers is a mature 11-year-old. When he was eight he wanted to start a charity to give to those in need. Four years later, and an essay contest later, he was chosen by Kraft Mac & Cheese to be the kid that presses the button to implode Texas Stadium.
I sent two days with the Rogers, both days at stops for his charity, along with sometime being interviewed by local media (other than TDMN) at Texas Stadium.
