David Castelline

Class of 1971

  In the mid-to-late sixties, if you wanted to track down Dave Castelline, you need only to search out a basketball court with a functioning rim. It is there that Dave honed the skills that would enshrine him in Acton Boxboro's Hall of Fame. As a sweet shooting guard of AB's dominating back-to-back 1969 - 1971 basketball squads, David established himself as one of the finest players in Eastern Massachusetts. David was twice selected as a Dual County League All-Star and twice selected as a member of the All-State Tournament Team. Dave is the fourth member of that team to enter the AB Hall of Fame. A tribute to Dave's ability amidst all of that talent, he averaged 18 points per game. Dave attended Springfield College, starring in lacrosse, graduating in 1975. Dave holds the distinction as a two-time Hall of Famer. In 1997, he was inducted into Concord Carlisle's Athletic Hall of Fame as a Coach. While at Concord Carlisle, he coached the girls varsity soccer team to 11 consecutive D.C.L. Championships, 3 EMASS Championships, 2 State Championships and a cummulative record of 170-18-14. David was twice named Boston Globe Coach of the Year and was the National Girls Soccer Coach of the Year for 1987. Dave has pedaled across the country to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House and in 1997, achieved his Doctoral Degree in Educational Administration. Dave is currently an elementary school principal in Newton and resides in Sudbury with his wife Ann and children Danny and Jesse. Dave's most memorable moment at AB was coming from 12 points down with 2:13 to go in the EMASS Tech Tourney Final versus Ipswich at the old Garden, winning by 5 points in overtime.
