"Very respectful, very coachable, just a coach's dream to have," said Castellano, remembering how during Rafael's senior season, the Eagles won a Golden West League title and reached the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division III-A playoffs.
Rafael wasn't the centerpiece of that team, but he contributed in his last high school season.
Montillo is in his final season with the Eagles. Ending it in the same fashion as his older brother did with a league crown and a deep postseason run would be fitting to Montillo.
