Wilson Hardware is a proud sponsor of Dave Jewett, a professional lumberjack and competitor in the STIHL® Timbersports® Collegiate Series.
Dave has broken over 25 world records both as an amateur and a professional lumberjack. He currently holds more than 30 world titles, and had the distinction of being the first American to hold a world championship title (New Zealand, 1993). By 2006, Dave was ranked first in the United States and fifth in the world.
Established in 1985, the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series assembles the world’s top lumberjack athletes to compete in the Original Extreme Sport. The Series is seen by over 20 million viewers annually in over 62 countries around the world on networks like Eurosport, The Outdoor Channel and the ESPN networks, where it is now recognized as the second longest running show behind only ‘SportsCenter’.
This year the U.S. Pro and Collegiate Championship will be held at the Norfolk Scope Arena in Norfolk, Va. And for the first time in nearly two decades, the competition will air nationally on ABC in September, 2014.
