Nocona’s Kooper Hansard signed his commitment to Tarleton State University on Tuesday to join the Texan’s Bass Fishing team. Hansard, the son of Melanie and Justin, has spent several years fishing in the Red River High School Bass Club. “I’m excited about attending Tarleton State University in the fall and proud to have accepted an offer to join the Tarleton Bass Team. My Dad went to college there, I’ve livestock judged there several times, and got to play some baseball there in the fall. It feels right and with my older sister living and working there, it feels like home.” Hansard is planning to major in Ag Business with the plan to enter the fire academy after graduating.
