October 17, 2014- Make A Wish- Hector Castillo 160 viewsIt was just exciting for Castillo, but also for Keisel who was touched by the emotional meeting and learning he inspired Castillo, who isn’t able to play football any longer.

“I don’t see myself in that light,” said Keisel. “To have a kid like that who has been through a lot…he told me today was the best day of his life. That really touched me. It shows you the positive effect you can have on somebody. You just strive to be a good person, strive to do good every day and you never know who it might inspire

October 17, 2014- Make A Wish- Hector Castillo 167 viewsPractice had ended just a few minutes earlier, and 16-year old Hector Castillo stood on the field in amazement, watching as Steelers’ players came over to him, shaking his hand, signing autographs and taking pictures.

And then the moment he wished for happened, the moment that you can’t even begin to explain how happy he was, how much joy it brought, without seeing it. Brett Keisel, the burly defensive end, walked over to Castillo and just hugged him. Saying it was special, that doesn’t come close to giving the moment justice.
