Gilmer swimmer signs with Texas


Not many East Texas athletes get a chance to compete for the greatest coach in his or her sport.  Gilmer swimmer Grant Koudelka will have that chance.

The three time state swimming finalist signed with the Texas Longhorns Wednesday.  Koudelka will be coached by three time United States Men's Olympic Team head coach Eddie Reese.

"He's one of the greatest swim coaches to ever live," said Koudelka.  "It amazes me to be going to the fastest swimming program in the nation."

Koudelka will join Tyler Lee's Sam Lewis in Austin.
