The bigger picture

Young, promising swim Lions open NFL season this week



“Shawn can do a little bit of everything. He just keeps growing,” Sullivan said. “He has an incredible leaping ability off the block. He’s so far ahead of people, his hands are hitting the water about five yards off the block and he gets from one end of the pool to the other with a lot fewer strokes than his competition and that’s a lot less energy expended.”
Among the swimmers Sullivan is hoping will have breakout seasons this winter include juniors Chris Lachell, Jack Whalen Bryan and Jeffrey Wojcinski, sophomores Michael Dmochowski and John Patterson; and freshmen Austin Hinton and Cole Twomey.
“Some of these guys had great junior varsity careers last season. We’ll see how they respond to varsity training and competition,” Sullivan said. “They’re great competitors, so I think by the end of this year, they’ll all be strong assets for us.”
Sullivan, who captured NFL titles in 2000, 2003 and 2005 and a VI title in 2005, is beginning his 13th season as the LHS boy’s varsity swim head coach. He is a social studies teacher at LHS.
