“I really liked the school, and I really liked the coaching staff,” Burton said of Lincoln, a Division II school in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
Burton played point guard for the Justices, who won the 3A state championship. On Monday the Justices received their state-championship rings.
Burton will play point guard at Lincoln, and he says he’s got a chance to play as a freshman.
“He’s the greatest and best leader I have ever coached in any sport,” John Marshall coach Ty Burton said. The coach complimented Burton for how much he’s improved during his four years at John Marshall. “I’m so proud of him, not so much for proving other people wrong, but for proving himself right.”
Castor (5-foot-11, 205 pounds) will play outside linebacker at Bluefield, an NAIA school. He played defensive end as a senior at John Marshall, but linebacker his whole life before that.
“They believe in a tight-knight group, a team as a family,” Castor said. “If I’m on your team, I want you to be my family.”
