MLF picks Gray to lead Western events

Major League Fishing (MLF) announced that veteran BFL tournament director Alan Gray has been selected to oversee the league’s Western events in 2022, including the Toyota Series, College Fishing and High School Fishing tournaments. Gray will remain the tournament director for the BFL Michigan, Mississippi, Music City and Savannah River divisions in 2022. He will work alongside Toyota Series tournament director Mark McWha and senior director of tournament operations for college and high school Kevin Hunt on his new Western responsibilities.

Gray brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Western events, as he has directed hundreds of events in his time with FLW and now MLF. Gray started in the customer service department in 2008 before being promoted to the operations staff in 2009. Gray assumed head tournament director duties of the FLW Walleye Tour in 2011 and 2012, then became a full-time BFL tournament director in 2013, a role he has held since. Working more than 20 events each season has earned Gray the respect of his peers and the anglers he works with across the country.

“Alan is one of the most dependable, friendliest and efficient tournament directors employed at MLF, and he is beloved by our anglers,” said MLF executive VP and GM Kathy Fennel. “We are fortunate to have him as part of our MLF family, and we are excited for him in this new role, where he will ensure a strong MLF presence in the West.”

Gray will oversee a total of nine events out West, starting in early March with the first Western Division events of the year at Lake Havasu. He will work closely with McWha and Hunt to ensure the events run smoothly.

“I have only been out West once before in my life, but I hear the lakes and the areas that we visit are absolutely gorgeous, and I know the fishing is great, so I’m really looking forward to the opportunity,” Gray said.
