New Elite: Brock Mosley
COLLINSVILLE, Miss. — Brock Mosley’s quest to join the Bassmaster Elite Series began at the University of Mississippi, where he combined collegiate angling with an academic major to complement his future career.
A degree in business marketing and competing on the Ole Miss bass fishing team was all part of the plan for Mosley, now 27. Playing outfield for the baseball team allowed him to fish only during his final year of school, but he made it count. Mosley and his partner, Andy Halford, won the 2011 College B.A.S.S. East Super Regional on the Alabama River.
From there, Mosley set out to gradually learn practical fishing knowledge by wading deeper into the nuances of tournament angling.
