Academy Sports + Outdoors, title sponsor of the 50th Bassmaster Classic on Lake Guntersville, announced that it's entered into a partnership with Elite Series angler Stetson Blaylock for the 2020 season.
“We’re thrilled to work with a professional as passionate about fishing as Stetson,” said Lawrence Lobpries, the company's senior VP of marketing. “As a pro angler and avid outdoorsman, he represents our commitment to the outdoors and the assortment of products we offer in-store and online. Stetson has proven to be a contender on the water and a force in the field, and we’re excited to add him to the team and be part of his continued success.”
Blaylock entered the Bassmaster Elite Series in 2017 following a 10-year run on the FLW Tour. He is the youngest pro to win an FLW Tour event and won last year's Elite event at Winyah Bay.
“I’m excited to represent Academy Sports + Outdoors this upcoming season,” said Blaylock. “Whether I’m headed out on the water or to the field, I can find what I need at the best prices at Academy. They’ve been my go-to for weekend adventures for years and I look forward to a long-standing partnership with them.”
Blaylock joins Greg Hackney and Jacob Wheeler on the Academy pro staff.
