Upstate veteran surprised with boat prize


Academy Sports & Outdoors surprised veteran Ron Jenkins with a Skeeter fishing boat and trailer Friday. 

A Berea native, Jenkins was the randomly chosen winner of Academy Sports’ drawing for the boat and trailer during the 2018 Bassmaster Classic.

Academy Sports employees asked Jenkins to stop by the store to pick up a gift card he had won, but surprised him with the boat instead.

Jenkins is a veteran who served during the Vietnam War and enjoys fishing in his spare time.
