The annual All Sports Association Fish Fry was held Thursday night at the Northwest Florida Fairgrounds.  

Hundreds of local athletes and families attended the event, along with local business owners, ASA members.  Fort Walton Beach Mayor, Dick Rynearson was also in attendance for the evening.

The annual Fish Fry recognizes area high school athletes who are set to graduate and pursue their sport at the collegiate level.  Each of the area high schools were also a part of the festivities on Thursday for the presentation of the annual spirit awards.

All Sports Association President-Elect, Kevin Boyer has been hard at work leading much of the week’s happenings.  Boyer said that the All Sports Association has donated over $3 million dollars to area charities and athletic programs in the past decade.

Additionally, Past President Steve Boswell was also hard at work orchestrating the Fish Fry.  Boswell has been spearheading the annual event for about 10 years and wanted to give credit to the resident “Boggy Boys.”  Chris, Richard, and Billy Brunson are brothers who have donated their time and efforts to do all the frying for the event for the past several years.  The Brunson’s had a late brother, DeWitt, who passed away a couple years ago and was also a long time contributor to the fish fry.

Boswell mentioned that the three surviving brothers help out with many charity fish frys around the area, in addition to their work with the All Sports Association’s annual event.

Boswell mentioned how his nearly 30 years in the ASA has seen some changes and evolving in the annual week of festivities.
