Author Joe Castellano spent the majority of his professional career as a business executive at Anheuser-Busch, the international beer company for which he ran six different groups in 26 years. Before that, though, he was a sportswriter for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, where he wrote about the St. Louis Cardinals, pro football, college sports, and such special events as Leon Spinks’s fights with Muhammad Ali. In 1979, he was voted by his peers as Missouri Sportswriter of the Year. Currently, he works as a business and personal career counselor in St. Louis. He believes his professional career was greatly influenced by his experience as a member of the overachieving St. Louis U. High football team in 1970, which he chronicles in his memoir Bull in the Ring / Football and Faith: Refuge in a Troubled Time. Castellano graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. He and his wife Lyn live in St. Louis, as do his two married children and grandson.
