Some football programs sell candy bars, others hold memorabilia auctions or hold a 5K/fun run.

But Trinity Christian went fishing for ideas, they came up with its own unique fundraiser.

The Lions program recently held its inaugural Trinity Christian Fishing Tournament

Annual Trinity Christian Fishing Tournament on April 12 at West Point Lake in LaGrange.

A total of 25 two-person boats signed up for the event, which featured $6,000 in payouts for first through 10th place including $2,500 to the winners.

A team of Daryl Adams and Trey Elsinger captured top honors in the tournament.

“We had numerous sponsors that helped make the event a success. I really appreciate their willingness to join us in our efforts to raise money for our program and players,” said Trinity head coach Chris Hanson of a list that included Better Way Signs, Coweta Sports Center, Chick-fil-A, Fish Hog Lures and Bill Leppo Insurance.

Hanson also wished to thank the parent volunteers and booster club members for their help with putting the event together.

“I want to thank Lee Johnson, Brian Grady, Warren Head, Joey Pendley for their help in planning this awesome tournament,” Hanson added. “I’m already looking forward to our next one.”
