The Osceola Anglers High School fishing team in Central Florida is just about the perfect picture of what a high school fishing team looks like. They have grown from their infancy to 28 fulltime members who are very active not only on the lake but also in their community. The team participates in a variety of intra-club events, a High School trail in the Central Florida area and events sponsored by the SAF/FLW and others. The club also has regularly scheduled team meetings that are run by the students to help plan their activities throughout the season.
“Typically, we run fund raisers throughout the year to help fund our year end awards which include Scholarships as well as fishing equipment,” Coach Lamar Chisolm, stated. “This year, with the addition of the Lew’s Grant Program, we can now ensure that all of our team members will receive new tackle and equipment to work with,” Chisolm added. “The team really likes the Lew’s products so receiving the Mach Combo’s is a big highlight for those who earn them.”
The Lew’s Product grants are available to all High School teams throughout the country who apply. Your team can start the process by going to www.futurefisherman.org or www.lews.com. The grant is designed to grow the sport of fishing and rewards teams that are active in their communities, as well as, supports the Keep America Fishing campaign across the country.
