“The addition of Noah to our team is a very exciting” Payne said. “He’s a very creative guy, accomplished angler and has already become an entrepreneur with his KickinTheirBassTV.com site. He has a very big following and our Advertising/Marketing program should be a perfect fit for him.”
SAF’s partner’s in fishing at FLW recently published an article on Pescitelli citing, “with more than 188,000 combined likes, followers and subscribers gained through Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, which he accumulated in about two and a half years, Pescitelli’s social media reach is comparable to that of seasoned bass fishing pros and other industry media. His reach is also appealing to sponsors, including the likes of Ranger Boats, Ridged Industries, Abu Garcia and Under Armour.”
“I’m really looking forward to getting started with SCAD,” high school senior, Pescitelli said. “My scholarship is a combination of athletics and academics which I’m very proud. I plan to major in Advertising and Marketing and I think the fact they have that major in a school that specializes in art and design is going to be very exciting,” Pescitelli continued. “I want to continue to grow my small business centered around the fishing industry while getting my college education and this opportunity gives me the platform to do that; I can’t wait to get started!”
Pescitelli has racked up several accomplishments in both the fishing industry and beyond, including starting his own high school fishing team and finishing 17th out of 180 anglers at SAF’s High School Fishing World Finals, among several other fishing titles.
SAF is proud to have played a little part in his journey and excited for how high school fishing continues to pave the way towards better educations and futures for young anglers.
