Andy Castillo has been a Roughneck since he was in the 3-year-old program and he has stuck to Sundown schools throughout his elementary, middle and high school years. He plans to study Diesel Mechanics in college, but where he will attend is still undecided. Andy’s favorite high school memory is from his sophomore year of high school when he got a text from Coach Newton after playing Abernathy when coach told Andy he was getting moved up to varsity. Andy he has been an all-district lineman ever since. His junior year he placed 1st at the regional powerlifting meet which advanced him to the state meet. He Theteam placed first overall, for a State Championship, and Andy won second place as an individual.
Andy always had his brothers Timothy and Simon to look up to and guide him through high school and life as role models. His favorite class in high school was welding with Mr. Rich where he also learned how to be a better son, and man, and one day husband and father. Andy’s advice for any and all incoming freshmen is, “Cherish every moment you have in high school because it goes by fast.”
Growing as a man and an athlete, Andy Castillo has matured throughout his years in high school and lives by the quote, “Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them- a desire, a dream, a vision.”- by Muhammad Ali All of us here at Sundown High School cannot wait to see Andy succeed in all of his future endeavors upon his May graduation.
