Written By: Tiger Times - Feb• 17•13

This month I sat down with a man who sees Analy High School like a second home. You see him at pretty much all the Analy functions. Chip Castleberry has been around Analy all his life, as a student, a teacher, and a proud fan. The staff who know Chip know him as a staff member and a coach. Here is Mr. Castleberry’s story as a student.

1. When did you first start going to Analy?
I started going to Analy in 1960 and graduated in 1965.

2. Who was your favorite staff member at Analy?
I think Walt Foster; he was a coach and Athletics Director.

3. What clubs, organizations, or sports were you a part of?
I was president my freshman, sophomore, and senior year and vice president my junior year. I was on the school newspaper where I covered sports. I was a part of Block A Club. I played football and ran track.

4. What was the biggest thing that happened at Analy during your senior year?
I think when Karen Valentine, an Analy student who became a well known actress, appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show.

I went to San Francisco State and played football.

6. What was your favorite moment at Analy?
I think becoming MVP for football.

7. What were the students like from your era compared to the students of today?
It’s about the same. I think students today are more exposed to the world. I feel that back then we were more innocent.

Yes.

9. What advice do you give to students today?
Enjoy the ride. Analy is great, so be happy you are getting a good education. High school doesn’t last long.
