Randy Howell, winner of the 2014 Guntersville Classic, goes to another legend’s win for his memory. “My basketball coach, Mr. Todd, was a big fishing fan in N.C. He invited me to attend the 1989 Bassmaster Classic in Richmond, Va. I was 15 years old. The final day weigh-in of Hank Parker winning inspired me to chase the dream!” Hank Cherry also gave Parker’s win his top memory, because, “He is our hometown hero.” He also recalls this exchange. “Put them on the scale Dewey! Put them on the scale!! Let's see what I got,” and that anglers didn’t talk with Ray Scott until their fish were weighed.
