The Briarwood Christian School Bass Team won their first team tournament of the year on February 9 at the ASABFA Regional at Lake Martin. “This has been a culmination of a lot of hard work and team work,” says Jay Mathews who coaches the six-boat varsity team (12 anglers) and 35 club members. This is the 8th season for the Briarwood Bass Team which competes year-round. The team also finds time to host their own fishing television show, “Winning Edges” which airs on the Jimmy Houston Network (JHL.TV). “It is totally produced by the students,” explains Coach Mathew.

Another big win for the team came on National Signing Day when team member Grayson Morris signed to attend the President’s Outdoor Scholars Program at the University of Montevallo. Grayson’s accomplishments include winning the Bassmaster National Championship in June 2018 with fellow angler Tucker Smith. The two will defend the title again this season.

Big win for the Briarwood Christian School Bass Team at Lake Martin. The team’s next big tournament is March 9 on Lake Eufaula.

Coach Jay Mathews has also been recognized for recently publishing an anglers’ handbook, Winning Edges Fishing available on Amazon. Professional angler and Bassmaster Classic Champion Randy Howell shared, “Awesome, easy to read handbook for young anglers in high school fishing. I highly recommend the book to young anglers, their captains, coaches and parents!” †
