With tears in his eyes

Juan Ro Chagollan Sr. is a proud papa. His son, Juan Jr., is the youngest angler ever to qualify for the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship. Juan Jr. is only 16.

"For us, his family, this means everything," said Juan Sr. "For all of Mexico, this means everything. For Juan -- he's so young, this is the biggest thing he's ever done -- this means everything."

As Juan Jr. took off, Juan Sr. filmed the moment with his camera. And when he turned back around, he was wiping the proud tears from his eyes.
