Looking at the consistent success of the UT Swimming & Diving teams, multiple conference and national championships (and possibly closing in on their 12th National Championship today), it made me wonder: what’s the secret—or is there a secret at all? Maybe it’s just the fundamentals of good recruiting, hard work, discipline, athlete development, etc. But this program isn’t just successful, it is dominant. If I were a coach at UT I think one of the first things I would want to do is visit with coach Reese and ask him: how do you do it? Different sports, apples and oranges, I know, but is there something else that could apply universally to cultivate consistent success at the highest level? How do the great ones get that way, and stay there?
