Classification: High Master & Nationally Distinguished
School: Senior and taking classes at Columbia Junior College
Goals: My main goal is helping as many shooters as I can so that they can perform to the best of their abilities. As for shooting in general, I'm training for not only High Junior but to be competitive at the top of the score board during Nationals, Camp Perry, OH. Also, I would like to dominate "all" team matches with my team mates!
Interests: Shooting, shooting, shooting. Any day at the range is a great day. Any day shooting in the pouring rain is an awesome day. Besides shooting I work horses and train colts, raft rivers, hike mountains, work in the woods, and load ammo. Once finished with high-school I will be attending Columbia College for an AA in Natural Resources Technology.
I little extra: Shooting is about trusting your balance mentally; allowing yourself to perform at your greatest. It's not a sport where the biggest and strongest win; it's the one who believes in them self.
Interests: Bradley is a die hard skier and in winter, if he's not on the range than he's on the slopes. This is his first year on the Grizzlies and went to Camp Perry for the first time this past August. He enjoys hanging out with friends, listening to music, shooting, skiing, and long walks on the beach! (haha) Bradley had a great time at Perry and it was a worth while trip for him and is very excited to be going back next year.

Interests: I love shooting of all types. Whether real or simulated if it has a trigger and a projectile I’m in! I enjoy airsoft and paintball with my friends and all the Call of Duty games on Xbox are my weakness. But High Power is my passion. To make the shot count at extreme distances always makes my day.
Anything Else: “You’ll get out of it what you put into
it.” Our coach Rob Taylor told us this at one of our practices and I like
to keep that valuable statement in mind for everything I do
Goals: My goals for this upcoming summer are to achieve the rank of High Master, Become Distinguished at Camp Perry, and to have a great time doing what I like to do.

Classification: Den Mom!
Other Info: "It is my pleasure to work with and to help these young adults. It is great to watch them grow with each year. They are our future, we all need to do what we can to help them grow up to be smart, responsible adults."
Classification: Team coordinator to help see everything runs smoothly and help serve as an ‘adopted mom’ to the team or whatever else is needed.
Interests: I enjoy my grandchildren that I don’t see often enough and working with all the juniors involved in the junior program. I have been involved with the juniors for atleast 17 years + now since my own sons were juniors in the program. It would be wonderful to still be involved having my grandchildren involved in the program as well. There are so many fine young adults who have evolved out of this program.
Goals: To see that everything and everyone is taken care of so they might better be able to focus on shooting the best they can. To see that these young people turn in to the best adults they can be when they come out of the program, both on and off the range since they are our future.
Other Info: We have seen young adults go from the Grizzlies team in to the Citadel, AMU, Air Force Academy, and Annapolis. Many have a goal of getting in to law enforcement or just helping to coach other youth new in to the shooting program. Each one is as important as the other.
