Sebastian Castro, junior, has been named to the 2017 IHFCA Class 6A All State Team in his past football season, with 7 offers from colleges throughout the United States.

“It’s all about trying to turn my dreams into reality. Pushing through and working for what I want. You really have to be dedicated and push yourself even through the rough patches and stages you go through. It’s not just physically preparing yourself but it must be mentally too,” says Castro.

Only being a junior, Castro came into his high school career starting on varsity level. He has then worked his way up into the spotlight with a few of his peers and was dedicated to perfecting his craft.

“It really started out as something I was doing for fun, but after a while it became more than that. It started taking over my life and I’ve grown to love football more than a sport. I love it like my lifestyle,” expressed Castro.

Besides being an awesome football player, Castro is also a great student off the field. He wants to set an example for younger players to show you can be great at both, not just one. It’s more than something on the field. If you want to be great on the outside you have to be even better on the inside, Castro said.

“You know I could be great at football and have terrible grades, but the reflection is on you as both and you don’t want to have that image portrayed,” added Castro.
