    Ryan Castillo, Chandler Hamilton, Boys Wrestling

    Hamilton senior Ryan Castillo is a superior student-athlete in football and wrestling who balances his brains and brawn in the classroom and on the mat.

    Castillo has a 3.9 GPA, 25-2 dual record and 16 pins under his belt this season. 

    Earlier this month, he won two titles in the 195-pound weight class in the Mile High Challenge in Prescott and Flowing Wells Invitational wrestling tournament in Tuscon. 

    Castillo's favorite classes are AVID and science. He plans to pursue a college degree in biology or pre-med.

    "During football and wrestling season, I manage my grades through staying on top of my assignments and clarifying with teachers what is due and when," Castillo said.

    "I make sure that I have everything done before I get to class the next day, and I use the work days I get in my AVID class to help me get farther ahead on assignments."
