THE BRONX - A barber in the Bronx has become the go-to for New York's professional athletes.

New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings has been a client of Davey Castillo for several years.

Castillo, the owner of Davey Cuts in Riverdale, usually makes trip to MetLife stadium or to Jennings’ house to cut his hair.

The close relationship of Jennings and Castillo began three years ago when a friend of Castillo's referred Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez to the barber, who has more than 50 years of experience.

"It was just word of mouth and the quality of work and service that you gave to one athlete and they told another," says Castillo.

Many of Castillo's clients have turned into friends over the years.

"Davey's a trustworthy guy,” Jennings says. “He's a family-oriented guy and has a good heart.”

Jennings is just one of more than 30 of Castillo’s professional athlete clients. Other clients include fellow Giant, Odell Beckham, Jr., and former Nets coach Jason Kidd.

"Anything is possible if you work hard, stay focused and stay dedicated,” Castillo says. “Anything you dream can become a reality.”
