Prep Talk Male Athlete of the Year: Leugim 'LG' Castillo, Lancaster

Earlier Wednesday, the Milwaukee Brewers selected Castillo in the 17th round of the MLB Draft. A three-sport athlete in baseball, football and basketball, Castillo deemed baseball his favorite - and for good reason. The Lancaster standout hit .577 with a .622 on-base percentage and 1.028 slugging percentage, hitting nine home runs and driving in 26 runs.

In basketball, Castillo averaged 11.6 points and 10 rebounds per game on top of recording 70 total steals and 74 assists. On the gridiron, Castillo racked up 39 catches for a school-record 850 yards.

"I didn't even know that was an award, but I'm thankful for it," Castillo said after receiving the award. "I want to thank my parents, thank the Lord, thank all my coaches, all my friends, teammates, my whole family, everyone that's been a part of this journey in my life. Moving to Lancaster was the best thing that's ever happened to me."

If Castillo doesn't sign with the Brewers, he'll play baseball at the University of Oklahoma.
