Thom Wilder is an Indiana boy who grew up in Chandler and attended Castle High School when their football team stunned the state by winning the state football championship.
In his book, THE ROAD TO PARADISE, Wilder talks about the football team’s miraculous undefeated season of 1982 and just how big of an impact that unexpected season had on not only the players themselves but on the state as a whole.

It seems we’re not a sleepy little southwestern Indiana town anymore … Castle remains a force — both athletically and academically. Find out when it began and why it continues.
