Tucson Ford Distance Freestyler Keith Brazzell Gives Verbal to Arizona

Keith Brazzell, a senior at Sahuaro High School in Tucson, Arizona who swims at Tucson Ford Dealers Aquatics, has made a verbal commitment to join the University of Arizona men’s swimming and diving team in the 2015-16 season.

Brazzell is a national-level distance freestyler with Summer Juniors times in the 400m free and Winter Juniors in the 800m free. He had a phenomenal long course meters season this past summer, dropping tons of time and breaking through to the next level in just about all the freestyle distances. Here are some examples:

Event 2014 LCM 2013 LCM
200m free 1:56.58 2:01.04
400m free 4:02.74 4:16.72
800m free 8:32.95 8:59.62
1500m free 17:31.45 18:56.45

Brazzell had similar, though less dramatic, improvements over the last short course season:

Event 2013-14 2012-13
200y free 1:43.58 1:45.86
500y free 4:33.52 4:41.22
1000y free 9:59.40 9:41.99
1650y free 15:59.09 16:18.58
