Tom Groden | Head Coach | Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving | Boston College (BC)

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

Honestly – Kids that want to go to Boston College. We have a team full of kids that are going to school where they wanted to. It makes it much easier to run this program.

Could you give an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

John Maloy – a senior on my team – continues to excel. John has such a great attitude. A few times when we have had say an easier meet, I have asked John “What do you want to swim?”. John’s answer is always the same – “What ever you need me in, Coach.” John loves to compete, race and win.

It is always just a game that we are playing – I like that I have so many kids that love to play the game of swimming.
