SEATTLE – ProfessionalBowlers Association Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., is the first TonyReyes Community Serviceaward recipient, named inhonor of the late PBA Tour champion in honor of his off-the-lanes activities, PBACommissioner Tom Clark announced today.The Tony Reyes CommunityService Award will be awardedannually to a PBA member whohas performed outstandingcommunity service and madecharitable and/or educationalcontributions over the course of the previous PBA Tour season.Reyes, a popular PBA Tour titlist, died inSeptember 2012 of injuries sustained in a trafficaccident near his home in San Bruno, Calif. Aneight-time regional tournament winner, he wasalso one of only 22 players to have rolled a 300game on a PBA Tour telecast.“There’s no more fitting recipient of the firstTony Reyes Award than Parker,” said Clark.“Throughout his entire career Parker has estab-lished himself as one of the sport’s great ambassa-dors through his selfless charity work.”Bohn, a 33-time PBA Tour champion, washonored for his work primarily with two char-itable endeavors he established – the StrikingOut Sandy fundraiser and his annual Parker Bohn III Scholarship Tournament – as well ashis involvement with High Hopes of NewHampshire, a program he has been involvedwith for the past 10 years.“When Tom Clark notified me that I won theaward I was speechless,” Bohn said. “To win thisaward in the name of Tony, who was a great friendnot only to me but literally everyone, left me feel-ing very humble.“Tony was a friend to everyone on and off thelanes. He was one of those special people who wasalways trying to improve himself not only as a bowler but as a person.”The Striking Out Sandy fundraising project ben-efited those who were affected by the devastatinghurricane that ravaged the East Coast in November of 2012. One aspect of the fundraiser encouraged bowling fans to either pay a flat dona-tion or pledge money for every strike Bohn threwduring the 2012 World Series of Bowling.In addition, Bohn treated kids and familiesaffected by the storm to a field trip in June of 2013that included a tour of a local bowling center, a day of bowl-ing and lunch.“The smiles we gave to thekids were priceless, you’d think I was Santa Claus,” Bohn said.Bohn hosts his annual schol-arship tournament over theLabor Day weekend. Since itsinception 15 years ago, thetournament has awarded nearly$70,000 in scholarships.“A lot of kids I talk to wouldlike to have bowling as a career  but I always tell them that theieducation should be their prior-ity,” Bohn said. “A good educa-tion is something that can’t betaken away from you and it opens doors. Not onlymy scholarship tournament, but all scholarshipsawarded through bowling have had a very positiveimpact on the lives of young people.”Bohn has been a fixture with High Hopes of  New Hampshire, a program similar to Make-A-Wish in fulfilling wishes of children with veryserious or life-threatening medical conditions. TheHigh Hopes organization conducts a three-day bowling event that includes clinics, pro-ams and asingles tournament as well as autograph and photosessions with Tour players that raises funds for thechildren.“The credit for that great event really needs togo to (former Tour player and proprietor) SteveHardy. I’m just honored to be involved with it,”Bohn said. “He puts on an awesome weekend for everyone involved.”Representative of the many comments includedfrom the nominations received for the award wasone from Christine Ruess who said, “The hoursthat Parker puts into all his community serviceareas are too numerous to count. The countlesshours are a testament to his devotion to the sportand helping others.”Typical of Bohn, he deflected a lot of creditaimed at himself and focused instead on contribu-tions others are making on behalf of their commu-nities.“I’m honored to win the first Tony Reyes Award, but people should know that a lot of PBA playersgive of their time and effort to get involved withcharities at all levels,” Bohn said. “When it comesdown to it, we’re blessed to be able to do what wedo and if we have the opportunity to put a smile onthe faces of those less fortunate, we’re happy to doit.”

SEATTLE – E.J. Tackett of Huntington, Ind., has been selected as2012-13 Harry Golden ProfessionalBowlers Association Rookie of theYear by an overwhelming margin invoting by PBA members and veteran bowling journalists.The end-of-season awardsannouncements culminate anexpanded 14-month campaign that began in November 2012 andended Dec. 31, 2013, as the PBAreturned to a traditional calendar year season that began on Jan. 1.Tackett, a 21-year-old two-timeJunior Team USA and one-timeadult Team USA member, wasthrilled with his award.“It’s awesome,” he said. “I joined a pretty good listof guys, a bunch of hall of famers and future hall of famers, so I’m in pretty good company.”Tackett, who left Indiana-Purdue at Fort Wayne to begin his PBA Tour career in time for the 2013 PBAWinter Swing in Detroit, was the overwhelmingchoice over Shawn Maldonado, Houston; Craig Nidiffer, Trenton, Mich.; Mik Stampe, Denmark, andBryan Viator, Friendswood, Texas. Tackett’s abbrevi-ated season included a fourth-place finish in the Wolf Open during the 2013 PBA Summer Swing, a sixth- place finish in the U.S. Open anda third-place finish in the end-of-season Round1 Japan Cup, whichhe entered as a non-invited TQR competitor.Tackett, who ironically wasattending IPFW on a golf scholar-ship, said he wasn’t ready to pur-sue his college education.“I was there for a year and ahalf, but I just really got unhappywith what I was doing,” he said “Ihad no desire to be in school, andit reflected on my school work, soI decided to stop dragging it outand try my hand at the Tour.”He made his PBA Tour debutduring the Winter Swing in Detroit where he cashed inthree of four events. He made his first televisionappearance in the Wolf Open in Milwaukee, finishingfourth. PBA World Series of Bowling V was “a littledisappointing,” he said. “I didn’t make a show after  being inside the cut three different times, but I hadthree top 10s, so it wasn’t terrible.“The best tournament I’ve had was in Japan, and thesecond best was sixth in the U.S. Open,” he said.“That was personally a better tournament than finish-ing fourth in the Wolf Open.”
