Fishing - Tue, Jul. 19, 2016

Georgetown College made official what has already been in the works for years. Shawn Combs, a Cynthiana, Ky. native, came to the nearby prestigious institute four years ago as an untraditional student and joined the bass fishing club team. He quickly became a well-known face on campus and one of the team's top fishers.

Upon graduation, he was not ready to leave behind what he had molded through recruiting and building for four seasons. Recently, Combs and GC director of athletics Brian Evans discussed the situation and came to a decision that Combs would take over the fishing program as its first official head coach.

"I'm ready to make this program stronger and bigger," Combs said. "As I was a student coach it was difficult to find time to finish class work, be on the team and take care of my family. Now as a graduate, I get to focus more on the team as a whole. I see great things happening.

"Fishing four season on this team, I never dreamed I would one day be the first official head coach."

Combs was one of two Tiger anglers to receive accolades this past season. He finished in the Top 15 nationally for collegiate fishermen, helping Georgetown to a tie for sixth as a team.

The future looks bright with most of those water warriors returning.

"We have a great group of anglers that are ready to get back out there," Combs said. "Jimmy Gayhart and Charles Morrison will be my assistant coaches, and they are just as eager to get rolling as I am."
