Dale Castro, a former All-American kicker at the University of Maryland and member of the Anne Arundel County Sports Hall of Fame, has accepted the head football coaching position at Annapolis High.
Castro, who was a three-sport standout (football, baseball, basketball) at Southern of Harwood High, still lives in that area. He is a guidance counselor at High Point in Prince George's County, a position he took after resigning as coach of the Eagles following four playoff appearances in 10 seasons, the last in 1997.
Annapolis also hired Meredith Beard, a Washington Freedom midfielder, as girls soccer coach. Beard led North Carolina to three NCAA titles and is playing her second season with the Freedom.
