“Ivan's work ethic along with his natural talent in butterfly will make him the "go to" guy for Eastern Illinois University. As he does for Boyertown Area Senior High, his ability to motivate teammates, will be a welcome addition to Eastern Illinois men's team. Ivan is sure to score multiple points for at their Summit League Championships each and every year.”
