Casey Suchocki is an engineering student from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who's motivation to compete on ANW came from his grandfather. He is also known for his nickname, The Bama Ninja.
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 ninth obstacle, The Clacker before failing. He placed 5th overall and advanced to his first national finals as a rookie.
On Stage 1, he failed the Jumping Spider when he didn't get a good landing during dismount, fell backwards into the water, and severely sprained his ankle.
Now married to his girlfriend Ashley, he returned to compete in Miami in American Ninja Warrior 10, and although his qualifying was completely cut from the broadcast, he was one of many who failed the Slippery Summit, but he was still fast enough to make the top 30, placing 18th.
His city finals run was placed in the corner during one of the commercial breaks. He was shown to be one of many who failed the Crazy Clocks, but his time was fast enough to make it to the national finals for the second time in his career as he placed 7th overall.
In Stage 1, Casey defeated his nemesis, the Jumping Spider, and cleared with 4.49 seconds left. His run on Stage 2 was digested but it was shown that he failed Deja Vu. Just like the Wingnuts last season, his season ended on yet another obstacle designed by Kevin Carbone.
He returned to compete in Atlanta in American Ninja Warrior 11. His qualifying ran was completely cut from the broadcast, but it was shown in full on the facebook page of ANWNation. He managed to clear the course in 11th place, even after he injured his knee on the Bouncing Spider.
His run was digested in the city finals, but he failed Up for Grabs. His pace placed him 13th overall, but because Drew Drechsel (whom received the Speed Pass already in Atlanta qualifying) also landed in the top 12, he was able to advance to the national finals again, barely making the leaderboard.
In Vegas, he got hung up on Spin Your Wheels, and had to hurry but he did hit the buzzer for the second year in a row. Suchoki started off Stage 2 beating Snapback which replaced Deja Vu. Suchoki was successful in finishing Stage 2 and got to the Ultimate Cliffhanger before splashing down in the water.
- It is worth noting in American Ninja Warrior 10 that Suchocki fell on both obstacles that won the Obstacle Design Challenge that season. Only two obstacles were selected for the season, with them being the Slippery Summit and Deja Vu. He fell on the Slippery Summit (which was submitted by Kieran Gulkin) in Miami qualifying, and he fell on Deja Vu (which was submitted by Kevin Carbone) on Stage 2 of the national finals.
