I have been married to my wife Stacey since 2003 and we have a twelve year old daughter AbbeyGail Lawyer.     

I am the City Administrator of Sarcoxie, MO, a position I’ve held since 1999.  My primary responsibility is to supervise staff in maintaining all aspects of the city's streets, water, and wastewater facilities.

I fished my first bass tournament at the age of 12 and grew up with a passion for the outdoors. I have spent the last several years fishing the professional side of regional bass tournaments in hopes to achieve my goal of fishing tournaments full time. I work very hard to promote and represent my valued sponsors at numerous in-store events, seminars and appearances, as well as in articles, videos and social media.

 Besides being associated with one of the greatest retail stores in the business, which in turn sells many of my sponsored products, I believe my easy going attitude and tournament accomplishments have given me a great reputation among both regional and national anglers which helps the promotion of all my sponsor products.

I enjoy all aspects that fishing bass tournaments at this level has to offer. From the personal contact made with a customer during a show or the education side of doing a seminar, to signing autographs for kids and having them say “I watched you on TV the other night” or just promoting and educating the public on products that they may or may not be familiar with.
