OTC: Graduates movin' on...
By Robert Przybylo
Some stories slip through the cracks, that’s why I love doing these ‘off to college’ pieces. You can’t write about everybody and sometimes you find out the story a little too late.
I got to write three of these stories this year, focusing on swimming, baseball and wheelchair basketball.
Typ Whinnery, Deer Creek: I’ve called him the silent assassin the last couple of years. He just goes out there and gets the job done when he gets in the pool.
I would have loved to have seen him in different events, but he was so dominant in the 500 free and 100 breaststroke that it’s tough to dispute the decision.
The Antlers didn’t have a coach, but with Whinnery, Logan Testi and Slater Pennington, they had three solid competitors.
Whinnery’s just been solid. Maybe he doesn’t shine or stand out (he’s pretty quiet), but he was easily one of the best swimmers in the state the last four years.
