David Perron is entering his third season as the assistant fishing coach under head coach Mike Keen. Coach Perron is a full-time faculty member at Bryan College and also serves as the Faculty Athletics Representative.
Perron’s background as a tournament fisherman gives him a great foundation as a coach. Perron has been fishing in tournaments for the past 16 seasons enjoying not just the fishing but the competition as well: “My days playing sports are over but tournament fishing allows me to continue to compete.”
Perron came to Bryan from Bluefield College where he was the soccer coach as well as a faculty member. “When God moved us to Dayton, He answered many of our prayers! I get to work at a fantastic Christian college and I am in the midst of some of the best bass fishing lakes in the country! I love it here,” Perron remarked about his move.
Some of his career fishing highlights since moving to Tennessee include:
Winning the Bass Fishing League (BFL) Lake Guntersville Super Tournament in 2010
7 BFL top ten finishes
He has not finished lower than 18th in the year end BFL rankings for his division. (He is currently 3rd with one tournament left in 2015)
