(Jan. 15, 2014 - MINNEAPOLIS, MN.)... <P>FLW, the world’s premier tournament-fishing organization, today announced that Straight Talk Wireless, a leading U.S. no-contract cell phone service provider, will return as a sponsor for the 2014 Walmart FLW Tour season. Of note, Straight Talk Wireless will again be represented on Tour by veteran anglers Scott Canterbury of Springville, Ala., and J.T. Kenney of Palm Bay, Fla.

"Straight Talk’s return for the fourth consecutive season exemplifies their long-term commitment to our sport and fans," said Trish Blake, FLW President of Marketing. "They continue to be a valued partner and great fit for FLW."
<P>
Canterbury, a former construction worker, has become one of the most consistent pros on the FLW Tour. After finishing in second place at the 2012 Forrest Wood Cup, Canterbury backed it up with a solid campaign in 2013 and finished the season ranked 21st in the Angler of the Year standings. Entering his seventh year as an FLW Tour professional, Canterbury has accumulated more than $730,000 in career winnings and has 29 career top-10 finishes.

Kenney, a former MotoCross racer, is one of the most recognizable personalities on the FLW Tour. With career earnings nearing the $1.25 million mark, Kenney is entering his 13th season as a professional angler. In 2013 Kenney had two top-10 finishes and qualified for his seventh consecutive Forrest Wood Cup appearance.

"We are excited to continue our partnership with FLW and be a part of the 2014 Walmart FLW Tour," said a Straight Talk spokesperson. "We look forward to another exciting season and cheering on our first-class anglers."
