Isaac Lovell's storied diving career is over, but the recent Lubbock High graduate got a final honor Thursday.
The National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association named Lovell a high school All-American for the third time in his career. The selection committee only hands out 100 boys and 100 girls All-America titles per year and only after evaluating each candidate on film.
Lovell finished his career in February with a second-place finish in the boys diving event at the Class 5A state championships with 467.85 points. He earned three silver state medals and a bronze in his four varsity seasons.
While Lovell certainly finished with merits to advance to the collegiate level, he opted not to attend college in favor of enlisting in the United States Air Force. He graduated in May and is currently in basic training.
Sophomore Lubbock High diver Payton Props, who won the girls 5A championship with 415 points, was not awarded an All-America honor.
