Athletics at Castle Park are rich in tradition and have given the school and its community a vital and strong identity. Being the only high school adopted by the USC Trojans back in 1963, CP prides itself on continuing Trojan tradition and meeting rigorous standards of sportsmanship.
With three CIF football titles and a “mythical” state title back in 1996, CP has earned its mark as a respected athletic school. The Trojans have sent sixathletes to professional sports, beginning with Steve Riley (CP Class of 1969), followed by John Fox (1978), Benji Gil (1991), Moses Moreno (1993), Zeke Moreno (1996), and DeMarco Sampson (2004).
In its 50 years of existence, Castle Park has also been responsible for sending numerous athletes to Division I colleges. We pride ourselves on hard work and toughness and we live by the motto “Tradition of Excellence”.
For all future, existing, and graduated athletes, “Once a Trojan, Always a Trojan” are words that become a source of pride and strength to draw on throughout life.
The record of excellence and high quality Castle Park Athletics has come to stand for has created a relationship to the Castle Park community that is truly special. It is a relationship that is filled with community pride, positive identity and one that has developed its own mystique by giving exponentially to all engaged.
