Xander Heavener (age 9) started fishing at the early age of two. He began fishing ponds out in the cow pastures, then moved to lakes when he was a little bit older. He fished his first tournament when he was six and placed in the top ten at Fishin’ Pals last year. Not only is Xander an avid fisherman, he has a passion for hunting and plays baseball. In his spare time he loves to shoot his bow and ride his dirt bike. He can’t wait to be in high school so he can be part of the Student Angler Federation.
