Cole Floyd, a 2015 graduate of East Clinton High School, was a key member of Bethel University’s national championship winning bass fishing team this season.

And Floyd and the Bass Cats will be featured on the Discovery Channel 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

At the 2018 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship tournament presented by Cabela’s in May at Pickwick Lake in Florence, Ala., Floyd and boatmate Carter McNeil won the individual championship with a winning weight of 47.75 pounds of fish.

That helped the Bass Cats of Bethel University claim national championship honors as well as the Cabela’s School of the Year title.
