With 5 events in, the Aftco AOY race is just heating up. Ewing Minor has taken the lead through 2 wins and a strong 2 other events. However, his Carson-Newman University teammate Jaxton Orr has some major momentum as well. While its still way too early to call it a 2 angler race, we look forward to watching this friendly rivalry extend through the remainder of the season and TOC.
The remainder of the Top 10 is stacked with some familiar names who have earned their way to top placing and are fishing their way to a TOC and AOY title race. With 4 very different regions and fisheries left, we can’t wait to see how this race develops as we work towards the TOC and final AOY points event.
Shoutout to the state of Tennessee for having 4 anglers currently in the Top 10.
