Bandy’s Senior and 2015 High School National Champion, Tyler Black, to join fishing partner on scholarship at Bethel University

DSC_0203 (2)The Brandy Trojan’s senior recently signed with Bethel University and is excited to be the third Trojan, following siblings and past partners, KJ and Chelsey Queen, to sign to the university.

Black is a two-time high school state champion and regional high school champion. Most recently, he added the 2015 High School National Champion title to his resume, a title Black proudly shares with his fishing partner and soon to be fellow Bethel University underclassmen, KJ Queen.

“It’s a great honor to get to fish in the SAF as the events helped me get noticed by Bethel where my partner (Queen) is attending right now,” Black said. “I’ve always been an avid fisherman and just started competition 2  years ago, but now it’s my life.  I can’t wait to pursue a Criminal Justice degree at the best college fishing university, Bethel.”

Black is a Senior at Bandy’s High School in Catawba, N.C. and will be attending Bethel in fall of 2016.

“I would like to thank my partner, KJ Queen, his dad, Jeff Queen and his grandpa, Carroll Queen,” Black continued. “They also helped me get noticed by Coach Mason at Bethel in Tennessee. Everything I’ve learned is because of them.”
