MISSOURI CITY, Texas - It's an opportunity for a rare few: representing the United States at the summer Olympics in London.
That dream might be a reality for Elkins High School senior, and swimming sensation, Daniel Graviss.
"He's going to the Olympic Trials as an 18-year-old, that's pretty big!," Tony Miller, a member of the Elkins varsity swim team, said.
Our Class Act of the week punched his ticket to the Olympic Trials in Omaha, Neb., this summer where he'll try qualifying in the 1,500 meter swim.
"It's the fastest meters cut to qualify [for], and just knowing that I made the fastest cut to standard is enormous," said Graviss.
How enormous? Try a personal record of 15:46.
"The cut was 15:53 so I didn't just make it but I shattered it," said Graviss with a smile.
Daniel recently led the Elkins 200 freestyle relay team to its state championship appearance, and just finished his Eagle Scout.
Daniel said his head swim coach, John Isbell, has been instrumental in his success.
"I'm just so happy for him and all of his [future] endeavors," said Isbell. "For him getting a scholarship to Mizzou [University of Missouri] and going to compete there, [and to know that he's] college bound, that's just incredible."
