DEL RIO, Texas - The Texas State University team of David Cosner of Austin, Texas, and Jay McCollum of San Marcos, Texas, won the National Guard FLW College Fishing Texas Division tournament on Lake Amistad Saturday with six bass weighing 16 pounds, 10 ounces. The victory earned the team $10,000 to be split evenly between the school and the school's bass-fishing club. 

"We started our day off throwing topwaters in about 17 to 25 foot deep water," said Cosner. "We were able to catch five fish fairly early. Then the rain came in and once it passed, the bites slowed and it was quite some time before we caught our next keeper."

David Cosner's Story

Posted by admin on May 1, 2009


My name is David.  It was a hot July summers day in 2006, I could hear the engines of the Moto GP bikes in the pits, the gut wrenching rumble of 250 horses zooming around the track at over 200 miles per hour.  My family and I were on our summer vacation through California, our last stop was at the 2006 Red Bull U.S.G.P at Laguna Seca. I have been waiting for this vacation for years, and it was finally here. Race day fell on a Sunday at two p.m, the bikes were on the starting line, engines revving at thousands of RPM’s. Three, two, one! The green flag drops and they are off, my brother Dylan and I glued to the fence on the side of the track. About half way through the race I noticed something different, my nose had started to run, just an ever so slight drip. Almost like I was coming down with a cold or something.

I went back to where we were camped out for the day and grabbed a Kleenex, thinking it was nothing, I went on enjoying my day at the races. But little did I know over the next three months I would be in the fight for my life at the ripe age of 16 years old. > Read More
