One of Winter Park’s premire swimmers, David’s dedication to his sport served as an inspiration to young swimmers into the late 70’s and early 80’s.
Lettering in both his junior and senior years, David was a Florida 4A State Champion in the 50 freestyle and the 100 back as a senior. In addition, he was elected to the National All-American team and was Conference Champion in the 50 yard free, the 100 backstroke, and the 400 freestyle relay. His 100 yard backstroke set the state record.
Following graduation from Winter Park, David attended Indian River and Daytona Beach Community Colleges before moving on to the University of Florida and Auburn.
David passed on his swimming expertise as the assistant swim coach for Father Lopez High School and Daytona Beach Community College, and until recently he was with the Team Orlando Masters Swim Team.
David lives in Winter Park with his wife Kathy, son Matthew, and dog Maxx. Currently, he is working with Orlando Food Partners at the Amway Arena doing backstage catering in addition to running his own yard service.
