With the University of Florida swimming and diving program getting ready for the upcoming 2015-16 season, Head Coach Gregg Troy took a few moments to respond to some fun questions posed by fans via social media.  Troy answered queries that ranged from serious to lighthearted, with everyone learning something new about the Gator man.

Of course, one couldn’t help but notice that some of the fans’ names looked a tad familiar (looking at you, Caeleb Dressel and Georgia Hohmann).  Through his Q & A, Troy gives his take on such topics as swimmer development, what it takes for college swimming and overall advice to parents.

But, Troy also appeases the tamer questions involving his favorite pizza in Gainesville, how much he loves Taylor Swift (or doesn’t), as well as reveals the year upon he decided to start growing his iconic mustache.

There is an especially entertaining exchange between Troy and Dressel, where the sophomore asks, “What time would you take in a 50 free for you to shave your mustache?”, to which Coach Troy responds, “Short Course 18.39, Long Course 20.89.”  It was a playful exchange, but definitely shines a light on the talent Dressel possesses when it comes to throwing down fierce times in the pool – enough where Coach Troy would risk his prized whiskers.

You can read the entire Q & A article on the GatorZone site here.
