The Rising: IW's Castillo plots historic finish to his mat career


There will be countless storylines playing out on the mats over the weekend at the Quincy Invitational.

But one of the better "under-the-radar" subplots has been the elevation of Illini West's Santos Castillo.

The high water mark for the Charger Senior was a a perfect weight class run through the Argenta/Oreana Invite; a weekend that saw him register all of his victories by pin fall.

Which makes him an intriguing darkhorse in a loaded 160 pound division this weekend and throughout the rest of the Winter as he looks to build on an impressive family tradition set forth by his big brother Gabe.
