Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.
Sarasota, Florida’s Jason Brzozowski and his younger sister Julia Brzozowski both made verbal commitments to Florida State University within a couple of weeks of each other. Jason will suit up for the in-state Seminoles beginning in the 2021-22 school year while Julia will start in 2022-23. The siblings attend Riverview High School and swim year-round with Sarasota Tsunami Swim Team.
A senior at Riverview High School, Jason was runner-up in the 500 free (4:30.35) and placed 4th in the 200 IM (1:51.99) at the 2019 Florida High School Class 4A Championships in his junior year. He also led off the 4th-place 200 medley relay (23.63 backstroke) and contributed a leg (47.46) to the runner-up 400 free relay. He is a Winter U.S. Open qualifier in the 500 free and 1000 free and has the Summer Juniors standard in the 1650 free and the Winter Juniors cut in the 400 IM. He had a strong showing at the 2019 USA Swimming Futures Championships in Greensboro. He placed 4th in the 400 IM (4:33.93) and 20th in both the 1500 free (16:28.86) and 200 back (2:10.35), and he went lifetime bests in the 400 free (4:09.39), 1500, 200 back, and 400 IM.

“I’m thrilled to announce my verbal commitment to continue my swimming and academic career at Florida State University. None of this would be possible without the constant support of my family, friends, and coaches. I’m so grateful for the journey that it’s been, and the journey that’s to come. Go Noles!🍢”
