NEW CASTLE —
It appears as though Kyler’s talents in the swimming pool are going to give him a leg up in life.
Division I institutions like Notre Dame, Texas, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and Georgia Tech have offered Kyler scholarship money to swim in college.
Other schools like Gardner Webb, Cal State and Delta State also have expressed an interest.
“He has quite a few schools looking at him,” Brown said. “He’s broken three school records. His times are all college-level times.”
The collegiate interest has sparked an improvement in the classroom, his dad said.
“He always got decent grades, but he wasn’t putting forth extra effort in school,” Paul said. “With the colleges showing interest in him, he’s trying to get straight As now. These bigger schools want to see the grade -point average rise and they want to see good SAT scores.”
Kyler hasn’t narrowed down his collegiate choices just yet, but he wants to major in the computer science or technical engineering fields.
“I’m leaning more towards a school that has what I want to major in,” he said. “I’d definitely like to build the next phone or the next computer. That’s where the future is. I want to get a good job.”
