THOUGHT I'D JUST WON THE CLASSIC!
Just out of high school, a young Alex wins his first tourney out of a 14 foot home made bass boat. First place only paid $500 in this regional bass tournament, but Alex thought he was rich! Even the home crowd knew he won. After all, he made the front page of the local paper with a well-respected local state representative. That was "tall cotton" to an 18 year old kid!
