Sounds like a fine young man

The local paper had a nice story about a young man from our neighborhood high school who decided to help teach children with Down Syndrome to swim. At first she couldn't float, but Hunter Thomson taught Emma Bennet so well that she can now swim freestyle, backstroke, and breast stroke in competitive swim meets.

Apparently, Hunter coaches as well as he swam. He swam a record-setting 50 free last summer. (Must have been a heck of a race.)
