Brian Stevens ’11 has humbly become a state swimming champion and hopes
to one day become a successful businessman.
Stevens is a runner up for this year’s Man of the Year award.
He has also been a member of the swim team for all of his high school career.
“Being on the swim team is important to me, it let me go to Manresa for swim retreats and they were always fun because we got to learn from the seniors and learn from the older guys and they have always been very influential,” Stevens said.
In the latest state championship he was the individual state champion in the 200 yard free style.
In addition, he actively participates in community service and is a member of the National Honor Society.
Stevens thought that it was a big change coming from a public middle school to a private high school like Brophy.
“Overall (Brophy) made me realize who I’m called to be by God and by the people but I think it has brought me closer who I’m supposed to be,” Stevens said. “I thank the people who voted for me and I congratulate the other guys who were nominated.”
Stevens said that he is grateful for his good friends and for his teachers’ influence on him.
Stevens has signed with the University of Arizona and he is going to the Eller School of Management with honors to participate in their business school.
At UofA he also plans to continue swimming and compete on its team.
