BRADSHAW, WV – As River View High school makes the transition to Single A in the fall of 2020, the Coalfield Conference Champion and State Qualifier, Aaron Addair, will make the transition to play golf at the next level.  

Aaron Addair, a fourth year varsity player and senior for River View High School, plans to play golf with Coach BJ Bower and the Bluefield College Rams. Addair has improved his performance and success each year he has played golf for RVHS. He is committed to do the same at Bluefield College.  

“Our area is not blessed with much of a practicing facility or even a course near us,” says coach, Larry Addair.  “RVHS is over an hour drive to the closest golf course.”  

Aaron plans to live on campus at BC, in order to be much closer to practice facilities and a number of golf courses in the Bluefield area. “Coach Bower has been a God-send and an answer to our prayers,” said Coach Addair.   

Aaron Addair signed to play golf for BC in the fall in front of his golf team, some close friends and family, and the superintendent of McDowell county schools, Mrs. Carolyn Falin. Aaron has been involved with golf since he was a freshman at RVHS. He worked his way up the conference and eventually to the state level in the fall. 

He has won the low medalist in a variety of high school golf tournaments in our conference and area: Low medalist at Tazewell County Country Club, Willow Brook Country Club near Grundy, VA, Twin Falls, Clearfork, and Wolf Creek Country Club in Bastian, VA. Aaron placed first in the Coalfield Conference at Pipestem and tied for second place in the Region tournament at Grandview Country Club in September, which qualified him to play in the state golf tournament in Wheeling, WV in October.  

The school and community are excited to see Aaron play at the next level.
