Two graduating seniors from Shreveport’s Captain Shreve High School committed to join the Northwestern State University’s Fishing Team this fall. Stone Smith and Clayton Page, both award-winning anglers, will attend NSU on scholarship as part of the university’s competitive bass fishing team.
Smith will pursue a degree in criminal justice while Page will pursue a degree in business.
Smith and Page already have ties to Northwestern. Smith’s father David Smith lettered in football and Page’s grandmother is a graduate of NSU’s nursing program.
The NSU Fishing Team is open to all NSU students. The club sport taps into the popularity of organized competitive bass fishing and competes in FLW, B.A.S.S. and Collegiate Bass circuits. The NSU team appeals to anglers because of the attractive waterways in the area, including Toledo Bend, Red River, Cane River and Black Lake.
The scholarship was made possible and funded by the Dylan Poche Memorial Scholarship fund. The Poche family of Natchitoches annually sponsors the Dylan Kyle Poche Memorial Bass Fishing Tournament on Toledo Bend, with proceeds going towards the scholarship and support of the NSU Fishing Team.
