The younger Castaneda is
also incredibly well-spoken for
an eighth grader.
Tony’s accomplishments on
the mat caught the eye of Jason
Ebbs, McNary head wrestling
coach, early on.
“He clearly has a desire to
compete, and be competitive at
the high levels of wrestling. As
I have watched him wrestle, he
does a good job of being ag-
gressive and has developed his
fundamental skills in a way that
he is not afraid to attack and he
is not afraid to lose. I am look-

him as he comes to high school
and developing him even fur-

Tony already has his sights
set on a state championship
once he’s in high school, but
his more immediate goals
are on the Whiteaker Middle
School track and fi eld team.
“I thought I could have
done better than I did last year,

more happy than I’ve ever

being bullied and hoped to de-
