December 12, 2016

Evensville, TN  —  On Monday, Eagle Angler Tyler Price singed scholarship papers to attend Bryan College.  Tyler has been on the Rhea County Fishing team since he was in seventh grade.  Tyler will be third Rhea County Angler to fish for Bryan.

Coach Brian Derlak said, “Tyler has been one of those kids that any coach would be lucky to have the opportunity to mentor. Tyler has been a member of the Eagle Anglers since his 7th grade year and has fished competitively each year.”

“I always knew that Tyler and whoever was his partner would give maximum effort, regardless of the circumstances. Not only is Tyler a great student in the classroom, he is also a very quick learner of new fishing techniques and adapts to the ever changing fishing conditions.”

“Tyler comes from a great, supportive family and will be a good fit at Bryan College. Coach Mike Keen is continuing to fill his team with top notch young anglers. Tyler is a guy who loves Jesus and demonstrates his Christian faith in his daily walk with the Lord.”

“The biggest adjustment for Tyler going to fish at the college level is that his his boat captains, Bill Arnold and Dwayne Price, won’t be in the boat with him during the events.”

“Tyler has had great instruction from his Dad and Pawpaw! Tyler will make that adjustment quickly and rely on his instincts of what he has been taught, regardless of who’s in the boat.”

“I’m going to enjoy this season with Tyler and all of his teammates. I hope the young fishermen on this team pay attention to this talented Senior and follow in his footsteps.”

Bryan Angler coach Mike Keen said, “We are proud to have Tyler commit to Bryan”

“We look for students who can make it academically”

“We also look for good Christian students who can come in an make it in that area.”

“Our program has grown and we had great season last year, finishing 6th in Nation.”

“The program has grown in confidence and now we go out and expect to win, no matter who the competition is.”

Tyler Price said, “Early in junior year I decided on Bryan.  I looked at other schools, but Bryan was always my top choice.”

“My PawPaw was a big influence on fishing as young man.”

“I will miss Brian and my teammates next year.”

Tyler is looking forward to getting a degree in Biology and hopes to get job with Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency(TWRA), after graduation.

One of Tyler’s biggest memories with the team was a great finish in his seventh grade year.
