"He's very excited and he has proud parents, grandparents, and lots of family and friends cheering him on," said his mother, Carlet Hagan.
Both Scotty and his ten year-old brother Mason, a sixth grader at the EC 5/6 Center, have been fishing the B.A.S.S. Junior Tournament series in the state of Kentucky since they were 6 years old. Mrs. Hagan helped in the support of the Western Kentucky University Bass team in 2015 which has aided in the effort for the WKU Bass Fishing team to offer scholarships.
Scotty recently finished 2nd place at Green River Lake on July 14th and has qualified for the KY BASS Nation State Championship in September at Barren River Lake. Mason is set to find out this week if he has qualified for the State Championship through point standings.
They are the sons of Raymond and Carlet Hagan of Mammoth Cave.
