Every successful team needs a captain, a spiritual mentor and a coach.

Senior Luis Osuna has fulfilled all three roles for the Los Fresnos Falcons during his decorated high school swimming career.

Since he began swimming competitively at 8 years old, the Cuidad Valles, Mexico, native’s ambition and pursuit of excellence in the pool fueled his growth. His performance stood out from his peers almost immediately.

“ In less than a year, I was already in the lane with the fastest guys and I was swimming with people that were older than me,” Osuna said.

Osuna is stubborn, perhaps to a fault, in that he demands more from himself than anyone else. He swims no fewer than 9,000 yards during his grueling practice sessions. He was fueled by his obsession with rising above mediocrity.
