Evans, Ga--We've covered a lot of different signings over the years, from mainstream to the not so mainstream. Today, a pair of Greenbrier seniors fall into the later category.

Jake Blumling and Cy CQasey have inked fishing scholarships with Emmanuel College in Georgia. The duo have grown up together and have been on a boat together for the last four years. Fishing scholarships are pretty new and this duo is taking advantage of it.

" I did not know there were scholarships four years ago and it just happen two years ago there were people starting to get full rides and everything and I hoped for a full ride" said" Jake Blumling

"Makes you feel just like any other athlete and for Emmanuel, their scholarships are for varsity sports" said Cy Casey

This is also the first year Emmanuel is having a fishing team at the collegiate level.
