The Okie Open kicks off Saturday on Lake Eufaula. It's a stop on the Paralyzed Veterans of America Bass Tour.

Dick Faurot and photojournalist Todd Ruffin hit the water with one veteran angling for Angler of the Year.

And, he found, despite being on top of his game, the fisherman is using his experience to help those who are recently disabled.

See that story in the video above.

Weigh-ins start at 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at South Point Launch in Eufaula. If you or someone you know is disabled and would like to participate in PVA events, go here to find out how.
