Friday Focus - BG Student named to ALL-AMERICAN fishing team!  

BG junior and Bass Fishing Team member, Tyler Lubbat, has been named to the 2017 Bassmaster High School All-American Fishing Team!  Tyler was selected from 380 applications submitted by high school students in grades 10-12 from 40 states across the country.
From the 380 applicants, Tyler, and 68 others were chosen as Bassmaster All-State anglers. After reviewing tournament résumés, community service activities, and recommendations from coaches and school officials, a panel of judges selected the Top 12 high school anglers in the country.  This team will participate in a special Bassmaster High School All-American Bass Tournament being held in conjunction with the 2017 Toyota Bassmaster Texas Fest benefiting the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department event, a fan-favorite festival that will be held May 17-21 on Sam Rayburn Reservoir in Lufkin, Texas. Each All-American angler will be paired with an Elite Series pro for the one-day derby to be held on a nearby fishery. Congratulations Tyler!
