Nominations for High School All-Americans open

B.A.S.S. is taking nominations for the best and brightest high school bass anglers in the country for the annual Bassmaster High School All-American Fishing Team.

B.A.S.S. is celebrating the 10th year of the selection of the team, which recognizes the 12 most outstanding high school anglers in the nation. The program is designed to reward young athletes for their performance in tournaments, leadership in their communities and involvement in conservation efforts.

Applications for the team will be accepted through Sept. 3.

To be considered, a student must be nominated by a parent, coach, teacher or other school official. Students currently enrolled in grades 10 through 12 with a current grade point average of 2.5 or higher are eligible.

Judges will select up to two student anglers in each state. These All-State Fishing Team members will become semifinalists in the selection of the 12-member Bassmaster High School All-American Fishing Team. Criteria include success in high school fishing tournaments and involvement in conservation efforts and other community service activities.

“I am super-excited to share this platform with the best high school anglers in the country,” said Glenn Cale, B.A.S.S. tournament manager of the College, High School and Junior series. “Balancing school and fishing is key and hard work.”

All nominees for the All-American team must be B.A.S.S. members. The online membership form provides options of one-year, five-year and lifetime memberships.

Notices have been sent to youth fishing directors of the B.A.S.S. Nation and other organizations, as well as leaders of state high school fishing programs. Adults can nominate students by filling out an online form here. Send all questions via email to allamerican@bassmaster.com.
