College Signing: Sonoraville’s Parker signs to continue fishing at Bryan
Sonoraville High senior Blade Parker (seated, second from left) signed a fishing scholarship with Bryan College (Dayton, Tenn.) on Thursday.
Parker said of the signing: “It’s just a blessing. I get to continue doing what I love and what I grew up doing. I want to do it forever. To get the chance to go to the next level to fish, I can’t think of anything else better. Getting a chance to get my education too, that’s just icing on the cake. Lake Chickamauga has some of the best bass fishing in the country, and Bryan is right there. It’s a small college so I feel like that will be good for me in the classroom. It’s not too far from home but far enough to get away a little bit. I’m ready. I’m definitely more excited than nervous. I want to see what life has in store for me. I’m expecting bigger and better things, and I’m ready to go get started.”…Full Story
