I've been involved with the outdoors from a very young age. Both sides of my family are avid outdoorsmen, and I owe it to them for getting me involved as well. I've always looked up to the big names in the fishing industry and always dreamed of being on top with them one day. College fishing has greatly improved my fishing abilities as well as helping me meet great contacts along the way. If it weren't for these things I wouldn't be where im at today. I would've never dreamed I would have made it this far, and it only makes me want to try harder to reach my dream of becoming a professional angler one day. I know it's only a matter of time and a couple of more tournament wins on my resume before someone takes a chance on me and makes my dreams come true.
