Wedding ring-and maybe Bowl ring in Cassel’s future

It’s shaping up to be a rather busy February for No. 2 QB/QT Matt Cassel. In addition to backing up Tom Brady [stats] at Super Bowl XLI (it’s destiny . . . .) Matt will tie the knot with his longtime galpal Lauren Killian in La-La.
Sorry ladies . . . .
Anyway, word from our pigskin snitches is that Stephen Gostkowski’s ever-reliable holder and his fiancee will do the “I Dos” after the football season is over.
Cassel and Lauren have been dating since college - they are both ex-USC Trojans. Cassel, of course, backed up two Heisman Trophy winners, Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart. Lauren, a Hillary Swank lookalike, led the 2002 USC Women’s Volleyball team to the NCAA Championship for the first time in 21 years.
She and the rest of the Women of Troy were honored by President Bush at the White House in early 2003. Killian, who was team captain, presented Bush with a volleyball signed by the team.
“It was so surreal,” she told the college newspaper. “(Bush) was so personable he made it really easy to be there.”
Lauren and Matt have flown under the radar for the most part. They’ve been together since meeting at college where Lauren was a year ahead of Matt.
They are both big USC boosters. Matt was a recipient of the school’s Jess Hill Award, named for the school’s former athletic director. Lauren is from a long line of Trojans. Her great-grandfather attended USC, as did two of her grandfathers, one grandmother, three uncles, one aunt and numerous cousins. Her father was a member of the 1977 USC NCAA championship Men’s Volleyball team.
The wedding will be in California near Lauren’s Han**** Park home.
File Under: Trojan Love.
