HEADLAND, Ala. (WDHN) — At Headland High Wednesday, Aaron Cherry signed an angler scholarship with the University of Montevallo.
Headland has one of the best high school angler squads in Alabama. At the signing, Aaron’s family, teammates, and University of Montevallo personnel came to welcome Cherry to the Falcons.
Aaron says it’s a dream to do what he loves and earn a free education.
“It’s nice to have a family to help, and that’s what we have here at Headland. If we have a problem, we discuss it amongst the team. It’s pretty nice,” Cherry said.
As a senior this spring, Aaron hopes the Headland fishing team can capture a state title on Lake Eufaula.
