WOODY: LHS angler nets a scholarship

Carson-Newman University fishing coach Hunter Sales says he recruits anglers for his team the same way football and basketball coaches recruit their athletes.

Brady recently signed with the Jefferson City university on a fishing scholarship and next year will start competing on the collegiate level.
