Nicklaus, there's different ways, but this is how it happened for me. I've been on the high school fishing team for 4 years at Washington County. I've ...more made the state championship 3 of those years. After really watching those tournaments, the coach at Campbellsville realized that I was finishing well in all of them, and after learning I had interest in Campbellsville, he got in contact with me and really started pushing scholarship money, it's not a ton of money, but seeing as Campbellsville is one of the only colleges that can offer scholarship money, it's pretty cool. The main thing you can do is work hard, keep your grades up, and try to fish as many tournaments as you can.
Congrats Trevor. You had a great High School Coach in Tim Messer and will have another one in college with Tommy Hall. I wish only the best for you and I hope this ...more post gets out to as many young people that can strive and get where you are today. I know how much hard work you have put in and I am so glad that its finally paying back.
