We at CoolWick are pleased to announce our newest CoolWick Crew Member, PBA Titlist, Josh Blanchard.
Blanchard is, of course, a house hold name in the bowling industry and we could not be more delighted to add him to our ever-growing and talented staff.
The thirty-one year old right hander has three National Titles on his resume, ten PBA Regional titles, and boat loads of collegiate bowling accolades, most notably the 2009-10 Collegiate Bowler of the Year.
The former Rookie of the Year isn’t just a tremendous signing on the lanes, though. Blanchard was the 2015 Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award winner — given to the touring professional that most graciously embodies what it means to be a true sport.
We at CoolWick are happy to add an exceptional player and person to our staff and we know that Josh is in for a huge season on the PBA Tour.
We know we will be following him closely, but make sure you do too, as he will be giving away tons of product on his social media accounts throughout the PBA tour season. Josh is very active on social media, so don’t miss out!
Go get it this year, Josh, and don’t forget to stay “Cool.”
