He will compete in the Paralympic games in London.
And his hometown is squarely behind him.
A billboard wishing Evan luck is on U.S. 41 as southbound motorists approach the very busy Margaret Avenue intersection.
Evan's coach says he will compete in one of his best events first: the 100 meter butterfly.
He's competing in four solo events, and has been invited to compete in a relay.
Evan and his coach, Jeff Thompson, set a goal that Evan make the U.S. Paralympic swim team.
Now that he's done that, Jeff has no doubt Evan will compete very hard at the games and even has a good chance to bring a medal back to Terre Haute.
"His 100 fly is tomorrow which is a good event for him. I think he's ranked 6th in the world and just a second out of the top 3. So top 8 final. I anticipate him finaling in the 100 fly. All you gotta get is a lane, and then it's down and back and anybody's game."
We'll keep track of Evan's progress and give you updates on how he's doing.
