Two-man coaching staff driving force behind successful NHS sports season
By Jacob Stock
One of the biggest driving forces behind an athlete’s success starts with superb coaching. Many hours are dedicated outside of normal school time to the betterment of the team, and finding ways to put your athletes in a position to compete at a high level. When you take a step back to admire what Nordheim High School accomplished this overall sports season it all begins with the two-man coaching staff of Coach Randy Castillo and Coach Carlton Williams.
Castillo, a Nordheim High School class of 2003 graduate, has been coaching at his alma mater for the last 13 seasons. Upon returning home to coach, he attended Texas A&M- Kingsville. Back in his high school days, Castillo was a three-time regional qualifier in the high jump. He currently still holds the school record in the same event with a jump of (6’-2”), a record that has been standing for roughly two decades. Along the way, his coaching journey has been full of growth and learning.
“[Back] in my first year I just learned the ropes and learned routines, you learn something new every day,” said Castillo. “It’s been an experience that has been fun. Every day brings something different in the classroom and on the court.”
