Kohl's Comments

Castro is the smoothest snapper in the country, when he snaps it truly looks effortless. He competed against a loaded group of talent at the Kohl’s National Scholarship Camp and showed why he is one of the best in the land. He has a great frame and polished mechanics. Castro finished the Scholarship Camp with the 7th highest overall charting score for the 2021 class. He is an exceptional snapper and an even better individual. Castro is the type of athlete every coach wants on and off the field.

Athlete Bio

Committed to the classroom and the football field. Current GPA is 4.1 and I am enrolled in AP and honors classes at Christopher Columbus High School in Miami, FL. I am consistently earning 1st or 2nd honors. Learned to long snap in Dec 2017 and earned the starting Varsity job in Spring 2018. I delivered 100% of my long and short snaps cleanly during the 2018 season where we lost in the State Finals. In 2019 I played both LS and TE and helped lead our team to the 8A State Championship. 2020 I am playing both LS and TE and focusing on finishing my senior year strong both in the classroom and on the field. I am humble and committed to being the best long snapper and student athlete possible.

Recruiting Blog: Setting Goals-- Athletic, Academic & Recruiting

Being a Kohl’s Coach for over ten years, the one thing I hear the most from athletes is talk of their star rating & ranking and what they want to achieve, especially during the Showcase season. But I wonder how many have thought about what it takes to achieve it and how to make it happen with their training? I am a big believer of setting high goals, laying out a detailed plan and doing everything in my power to try and achieve them.
