The coveted ROY title was won by last year’s 2020 KBF National Champion, Matthew Conant, when he bested several other top rookies on Guntersville Lake during the KBF season’s dramatic finale. In Conant’s words: “It took determination, consistency and a lot of focus throughout the year. I set a goal to reach for the R.O.Y. title in early 2020 and followed that up with attending as many KBF TRAIL events as possible. There is no better feeling than conquering your goals!”
