“It feels good because you can see it in their faces that they’re excited and they want to learn. It’s a good feeling for me as a veteran that I can give them advice about the international game that they can use in case they get called up.”

Seeing the young guns buckle down to work, Castro was ecstatic for the future of the national team as he worked with guys like Robert Bolick, CJ Perez, Paul Desiderio, and Juan Gomez de Liaño in the session, giving them pointers on how a guard’s role in coach Chot Reyes’ system is played.

Castro said the young guards are lucky that they are already getting valuable lessons and exposure at their age.
