Meet The Team

 

Clint Sylvester - President

Growing up I spent most of my life outdoors hunting, fishing, and camping. Of these activities, fishing always held a special place in my heart. I grew up doing most of my fishing on Lake Texoma chasing the infamous striper. This had such an impact on my life, that in college I decided to major in Parks and Recreation Management. Throughout college I took a variety of classes dealing with recreational therapy and learned how it could change and impact
someone’s life for the better. I have many memories made in the outdoors, and Fishing for Heroes is the best way I can think of to enable veterans to have the same experiences that I have enjoyed. In this way I believe I can give back to the soldiers and families who have given so much for my family and me to be able to live free and happy lives in this great country.

Brian Bostick - Vice President

There is no greater sacrifice than to serve your country. To the men and women that have, I have the utmost respect for. I am thankful for what those before us have done and those serving today will do. I was introduced to the outdoors at a young age, and it has become a passion of mine. I have traveled The United States on many hunting and fishing trips. I have gone from the mountains of Colorado to the swamps of Louisiana. I have enjoyed almost everything this country has to hunt or catch. I now have found a way to share my passion with the veterans that have served The Great United States and there is no higher honor! I work as a Firefighter/Paramedic in the north Dallas area, I am married to the love of my life Ashley. She is my biggest supporter, and this would not be possible without her. We have two boys together and we currently live in the East Texas area. I look forward to what this great organization will become and the rehabilitation and opportunities we can present to these great men and women.

Colton Quick - Founder

When I was younger, I spent all of my spare time fishing. This love that I have for the outdoors has stayed with me throughout my life. I have always had the deepest respect for the men and women of our armed forces. These two principles have given me the idea for Fishing for Heroes. I have some close friends and family who are veterans, and almost all of them have either lost someone overseas or lost someone after the fellow soldier has returned home. You never want to see someone experience the pain and grief involved. With how relaxing and enjoyable being in the outdoors is, if we can help just one person brighten his or her life and stray away from any dark thoughts or memories, we have succeeded. Our goal at Fishing For Heroes is to improve one’s outlook on life and the ability to progress and move forward through outdoor recreational experiences. With open hearts, open arms, and open waters, we can achieve this goal.
