Evans, GA (WJBF) — Tyler Matthews said Friday it was a “dream come true” when he and his friend Blake Stephenson won the the TBF/FLW High School Fishing National Championship in Missouri last Sunday. The young duo from Evans were representing Evans High School in the competition. Matthews, 20, graduated from Evans last year. Stephenson, 14, is in 8th grade at Evans Middle School.
The win earned them a $10,000 scholarship to be shared between the two of the them.
We will have more on their great accomplishment and how they have gotten so good at fishing Sunday on WJBF News at 6 and 11 and here on wjbf.com.
