I just want to give a shout out to the two young men that turned $120.00 at the Lake Fork Open High School Tournament on Friday. They didn't get names so we could meet them and thank them. I captained two young men and dad stuck the money in my pocket at the meeting on Friday evening. I had a good luck coin I carry when I fish and the $120.00. I didn't even know for sure how much it was. When I pulled my truck keys out of my pocket everything came out when my keys hung on the pocket. I didn't notice it until I got to the house and was taking everything out of pockets. I drove back over to Oak Ridge and only found my coin. The next day after the tournament I contacted the tournament director to see if any money was turn in. All I knew was there was a $100 bill. He told me there was $120 turned in by two young men. I called the dad and asked him what the amount was and he verified it was $120. I got hold of the director and told him that was the amount and the dad went over and picked up. Some family has raised two young men the correct way. Fishermen of the future are also the future of humanity. It gives me hope to believe in humanity. Having taught school for 33 years, I didn't always see this behavior. To the Parents of these two young men, I don't who you are to be commended on raising to great young men. And, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

We are so glad the money got back to it's rightful owners smile The youth anglers involved in the Lake Fork Open High School Scholarship Tournament are top notch! The boys who turned it in were only interested in doing the right thing, they wouldn't give us their names - but did not want whoever lost it to suffer saying "this could be all their spending money for the whole weekend -food and everything!" Great Young People!
