Recently Bryce Timonero placed second in two events at the state swimming meet. This was the culmination of a 4 year career that saw the personable young man swim at the state meet all four years in high school. No one can imagine how many hours Bryce has spent in the pool since he took up swimming at a very young age. While most of his friends were hanging out or sleeping Bryce was swimming. Only someone with the inate ability he has can reach down and perform at that level as he did at the state finals. Having said this I must add onbe important thing-even when you have this kind of ability you will not achieve anything unless you train as that kind af ability can endure. You and I can reach deep and try our best to do some feat but putting us in a pool will only show, in my case, an old man trying not to drown. What also makes Bryce special is the personality he shows. I have worked with him in track and he is one athlete you like to help. He listens, he remembers, and when you meet him he is not afraid to acknowledge he knows and likes you. This also makes Bryce special. Watch what he does the next few years as he pursues his dream.
