Garmin Announces 2017 College Fishing Team


We are pleased to announce the 10 collegiate anglers/teams that have been selected to represent Garmin College Team/Angler Sponsorship for the 2017 college fishing season. The 10 anglers were selected from dozens of applications from anglers across the nation looking for a chance to be a part of the first collegiate Garmin team.

Each of the anglers will be equipped with detailed lake maps and best-in-class Garmin marine electronics and technology to use on their boats during tournaments, television shows, and in public appearances.

“Garmin continues to attract elite anglers from across the country and we’re excited to add a collegiate team to the Garmin Marine roster,” said Ted Gartner, Garmin director of corporate communications. “We congratulate those selected and look forward to their many successes this year.”

The new 2017 Garmin College Fishing Team anglers include:

Trevor Williamson – Morehead State University
Chandler Robertson – University of Missouri
Sheldon Rogge – Kansas State
Zach Clisch – University of Wisconsin-Platteville
Team of Nathan Bell & Cole Sands – Bryan College
Daniel Holt – Tennessee Tech University
Jacob Harris – Southeast Missouri State University
Samuel Haines – Kansas State
Ethan Raleigh – Morehead State University
Christopher Oja – Ferris State University

“The Garmin College Fishing Team is a great opportunity for anglers to get a chance to experience what the professional fishing industry is about,” said Wade Middleton, Director of the ACA and President of CarecoTV. “Understanding how to promote a brand is a difficult skill that Garmin is taking the time to teach to these collegiate anglers while allowing them usage of the best mapping and sonar capabilities available to them.”
