In Memory Of Dylan Poche

For those who don't know the story of Dylan Kyle Poche, he was a young man with a bright future who had his life tragically taken from him. Even though I had read the article about what had happened to Dylan, I had no idea what I would be in store for only a few weeks later. A friend of his sent me a few videos saying she had known Dylan a long time and that she just thought I should know how much my song "Exposed" meant to him and now the entire community. She said it was kind of bringing people together because he loved the song so much. This probably won't sound to manly. I don't care. When I watched those videos she sent I cried like a baby. He was being carried away in a boat while exposed was playing. It was like a piece of me was there and honestly probably always will be. This is the biggest thing that's ever happened to me in my career. I've always said I'd rather touch the life of one person than to touch a million dollars and I've always meant it. I honestly feel like sometimes in life we are sent people and moments like this to remind us just how important every thing that we do is. I have been in contact with Dylan's father who is a really great guy and Im looking forward to going down to Louisiana to fish in a tournament in his memory this summer.

I had this decal made in memory of Dylan and as a reminder to me of how special life is and how precious time is. Although I never met Dylan he has had a huge impact on my life and for that I am forever grateful. From now on I'm ‪#‎FishingForDylan‬

Dylan Kyle Poche Memorial Scholarship

A Natchitoches Central High School student will benefit from a scholarship established to honor the memory of a fallen student. The Dylan Kyle Poche Memorial Fishing Scholarship will be presented each spring to a graduating member of the NCHS Fishing Team who plans to be a member of the NSU Fishing Team. Poche was a 2015 graduate of Natchitoches Central High School and an avid outdoorsman. The 18-year-old excelled at tournament fishing and was a member of the NCHS Fishing Team. Poche was also a member of the NSU Fishing Team as a freshman. Poche was fatally stabbed January 31 at the Sibley Lake boat launch in Natchitoches.

The scholarship was established by Poche's parents, Burt and Shelly Poche and Misty Ott.
