In this week’s Good Day Prep Star, we salute the finest high school swimmer in the state of Illinois.
In fact, he's one of the best in the entire country, Danny Thomson. Last February, he won the 200 yard freestyle at the state meet.
Thomson won four events at the West Suburban Conference Silver Division meet, leading the Red Devils to their 12th conference title in 13 years.
Thomson is a three-time state champ and state record holder in the 500 free. He's also a four-time junior national champion.
He will swim next year for Stanford, not only one of America's top academic institutions but also a college swimming powerhouse.
Look for another record breaking swim or two from Thomson at the state meet coming up Feb. 24 and 25 in Evanston.
