One of [Dale Castro]'s best traits is his willingness to participate in practices, said Commandos Coach Bob Harrison, whose team plays the Chicago Bruisers Thursday night at Capital Centre. "Usually, most kickers go off by themselves and do their own thing," he said. "People usually get upset because of kickers doing that."
Sure enough, Castro has been in on several tackles, and he threw a block on a successful fake field goal against Denver. "He's an excellent athlete for a kicker," [Jim Williams] said. "I feel comfortable with Dale out there on kickoffs. He will go out and make a tackle, though you usually don't want your kicker doing that."
Several days after the loss to Pittsburgh, when the Commandos took a look at the Capital Centre before their first home game, Harrison asked Castro to demonstrate the kick for several media people.
