Have you ever taken a long look into your heart, soul and mind and asked yourself why you love this sport? How is it that a little green fish with a pea-sized brain has such an unwavering hold on you? Maybe it helps you relax. Maybe it satisfies your competitive spirit. Maybe it’s just all you’ve ever known. Or maybe, as is the case with 24-year-old Texas State University angler David Cosner, it literally helps you survive.
I believe, with everything I am, that God places certain people in our lives to teach us imperative lessons. Some of these people might teach us perseverance while others may teach us how to love deeper than we ever knew possible. Today, however, an angel in the form of David Cosner taught me about perspective.
