A one-play look at why James Castleman will play D1 football

If you have seen any Amarillo High Sandie games this year, you have witnessed the impressive, yet visually subtle play of James Castleman at the nose guard position for the Sandies. The spectacular looking stuff is a little rarer for him, although not unseen. I have seen him bat down several passes, block a kick, and get into the backfield for tackles for loss. But mostly, he stuffs up the middle of the field, getting a lot of push into the backfield, and freeing up this teammates to make a lot of tackles. I have seen two games, and while looking at the tape of what I shot, I noticed something on a particular play. It was a goal line situation against Tascosa, and the Rebels sent Casey Burkhardt up the middle hoping to plunge into the endzone.
