Eddie Reese Hooks his Swan Song Swimmer

Jack Conger can do everything from the 50 free the 500 free and his specialty is the backstroke. He’s a college coaches dream. As usual, Eddie Reese locked down the top recruit in the class but is it enough to threaten the Cal Bears? Dave Durden’s squads have locked down the last two NCAA championships and are loaded for a run at more? Find out what Conger thinks… Plus we talk about his goals for his senior season, which include taking down Jeff Kostoff’s 500 freestyle high school record of 4:16.39. This kid is one shave away from sub 1:40 in the 200 backstroke and he knows it. Could this be the last super star of the Eddie Reese era?
