Mr. Evans’ education started at St. Therese grade school in Aurora,
which was run by the Sisters of Charity. He participated in the school
speech team and swam year round with the USS club, MACS. He then attended

national champion Raider swim team, lettering all four years and making the dean’s
list. He also worked part time all four years through high school.
He continued his Jesuit education in college at Xavier University in Cincinnati

Mr. Evans traded in his swim cap for a pair of boxing gloves, and captained
the Xavier NCBA boxing team the remaining three years. He was also a part
of Xavier’s Army ROTC Ranger Team, and worked full time all four
years at college as both a swim coach for USS club and ABLY, as well as
a local bartender. During the summers, Mr. Evans returned back to Colorado
to intern for the Denver Public Defender’s office, working on both
