Mike Scroggins Earns 2015 PBA50 Rookie of the Year Honors

Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas, won his third PBA50 Tour title of the season and in the PBA50 DeHayes Insurance Group Championship presented by Pro Bowl West and Ebonite finale to clinch 2015 PBA50 Rookie of the Year honors.

Scroggins, who returned to PBA competition in April after a year-long absence because of a serious foot ailment, defeated 10-time PBA Tour winner and finals top qualifier Bryan Goebel of Shawnee, Kan., 278-221, in the title match at Pro Bowl West to become the season’s only three-time winner.

With his three wins Scroggins was the runaway winner for PBA50 Rookie of the Year honors.

“I just wanted to be in the running for rookie of the year when the season started,” Scroggins said. “Winning one tournament would have been icing on the cake. I didn’t know what to expect this season but to have the year I had was much more than I expected.”

Scroggins, who qualified third for the finals defeated Ed Silva of Manteca, Calif., in the second stepladder match, 227-217, and then beat Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Fla., in the semifinal 248-212, to reach the championship match against Goebel.

Scroggins other titles during the season came in the Johnny Petraglia BVL Open and UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages.
