By the end of 1994 he had won 45 Grand American trophies, 47 Satellite Grand awards, 18 ATA Eastern Division championships, 45 New Jersey titles, and 12 Golden West Grand trophies.

His championship wins at the Grand American began in 1970 where he won the top AA prize in Singles Class with 200 plus 174 in shootoff and 50 in carryover. He repeated that victory in 1981, finished third in 1982 and 1984, all after breaking 200s. He has a total of seventeen 200 straights during Grand American competition.

In his second season of registered competition. Kay won his home state handicap and all-around crowns. He has amassed 10 singles, 3 handicap, 12 doubles, and 20 all-around championships in New Jersey, setting and breaking records en route.

The 1995 men’s All-America captain, Ohye was named to his first All America team in 1970. He’s been on 25 of them since. He and Deborah are the second father-daughter duo to be named to All-America teams the same year, and they have achieved it for the past seven seasons.

Career Highlights

Former New Jersey resident, now a resident of Pennsylvania,  Deborah Ohye-Neilson is proof substantial that shooting ability can indeed be inherited. Her dad, Kay, is a 1995 Hall of Fame Enshrinee. Debbie and her father are the only daughter and father to be inducted into this select group.

She started registered shooting in 1981 and six years later won her first of 77 Grand American trophies.

Debbie is the first woman to complete the ATA Grand Slam and she considers it her most memorable accomplishment. She broke her first 100 straight in doubles during the 1996 Ohio State Shoot and 100 straight from 27 yards at the 1994 Western Grand.

Her category wins at the Grand American are nothing short of amazing and include: three Clay Target Championships (all with 200×200), five Doubles Championships, four Ail-Around titles (a record of 394×400 in 1998) and five High-Over-All wins (a record of 975×1000 in 2003). Additionally, she has won the Dayton Homecoming, Champion of Champions and the Grand American Handicap. In 2000 during Thursday’s prelim-doubles, she beat the field with a perfect 100.

Debbie has accounted for 66 category wins during ATA Satellite Grands. At the 1997 Southern Grand she beat the field to win the doubles title with 100.

In addition to her four women’s crowns in Eastern Zone competition, she won back-to-back doubles titles over the field in 2001 and ’02. Her all-around at the ’04 zone shoot also led all shooters.

Ohye has won the New Jersey state women’s title in 15 of the last 17 years and beat all competition to win the doubles and all-around crown in 2001.

She has been on every All-American team since 1988 and named captain seven times.

Phil Kiner of Cheyenne, Wyo., first shot trap in 1972 while attending the University of Wyoming. The university sponsored a team to attend a college shoot in Norfolk, Neb. After a squad member cancelled, the team asked Phil to try out “because I had been a quail hunter in Oklahoma and not that many people in Laramie knew much about shotguns.” He went to the shoot and used a borrowed 870 trapgun. “I wasn’t going to get into shooting full time, and that was going to be my first and last shoot.” After the squad won top team honors and Phil captured two individual trophies, he was “hooked.”

Kiner has 40 trophies in Grand American competition. His first was in 1982, when he won the Class A championship in prelim Friday’s doubles. He placed fifth in the Grand American Handicap in 1990 and was champion of the trap & field Handicap in 1993. In 1996 his six trophies included first-place honors in the Dayton Homecoming plus runnerup in the Doubles Championship after a four-way tie of 100s. He placed second in the Champion of Champions in 1997. Kiner won a championship ring in 1998, topping HOA standings with 985×1,000. He bested that score by three last year for the AAA title.

Kiner’s Satellite Grand championships include two from the 1997 Dixie Grand for singles and high-over-all. He has 12 titles from the Southwestern/Midwestern Grand, including four singles, three doubles, three all-around and two high-over-all. His 11 crowns in Western Grand competition include four straight in singles between 1995 and 1998 plus two handicap, two all-around and three straight high-over-all. In 1998 he established the HOA record of 1,185×1,200. Kiner won the 2002 Spring Grand singles championship. Last year he captured three of the Great Lakes Grand titles— the handicap, doubles and all-around. He also won the HOA crown in 2000.

In Western Zone competition, he has one handicap, one doubles and three all-around titles.

Kiner has won 40 Wyoming state titles since 1974, including six singles, nine handicap, nine doubles and 16 all-around. He was the first to win the twin-bird crown with a perfect score, a feat he accomplished in 1996. He also established the current all-around record of 397 in 2000.

One of only two people who have entered a perfect score on a program’s 400 championship targets (200 singles, 100 handicap and 100 doubles), Kiner is the only one to have accomplished the feat twice. He first did it at the 1994 Colorado State Shoot, and the second time was during the 2005 Western Zone. He is the only shooter in ATA history to win a resident all-around championship with 400. At that time he also won the high-over-all with 995×1,000, an ATA record.

The 24-time All-American first made the team in 1982 and has been on it every year since 1984.

Kiner broke his first 100 straight from the 27 at the 1980 Wyoming State Shoot and completed his ATA Grand Slam on May 20, 1984, with a century in doubles.

He has registered 83 200x200s in ATA competition plus 56 100s in doubles and 34 centuries in handicap (all from the 27).

Kiner has served as president of the Wyoming state association and as ATA Delegate. He is currently the Alternate Delegate.

He started teaching trapshooting clinics in 1988 and began doing that full time in 1995. In 2003, he went back to work for the state of Wyoming.

During his shooting career, Kiner has registered 138,450 singles, 137,900 handicap and 83,900 doubles targets. He has taught or competed in 39 states and three Canadian provinces.

Harlan Campbell Jr. started shooting around the age of seven, going to the club with his dad, and his accomplishments in the sport since then are many.

His extensive trophy collection includes more than 125 awards in Grand American competition, including three All-Around and two High-Over-All championships.

Campbell has won 60 Satellite Grand titles, collecting four singles with 200s and 12 doubles with 100s. In addition he established the all-around records of 397 at the Great Lakes and Northeastern Grands plus the Southwestern Grand high of 399. He won the 2009 Southwestern Grand HOA title with a record 1283×1300 plus the 2008 Heartland HOA with 1086×1100 still the high mark.

An eight-time Southwestern Zone titlist, Campbell has won the singles and handicap one time each, the doubles four times and the all-around twice. His Kansas state shoot titles include one sub-junior, seven singles, three handicap, eight doubles and 12 all-around.

Campbell has earned spots on the All-American team 17 times, with all of them being on the men’s first team except for a placement on the 1980 junior team and 1997 men’s second. He has been a member of the men’s first team every year since 1998, earning the captain slot six times in the last nine years.

Harlan has collected TRAP & FIELD All-Around Average Awards every year since 2002, and he completed his ATA Grand Slam in August 2000 with a 100 from the 27.

“My career has had a lot of highlights,” Harlan said. “There’s not one that stands out because they all mean something to me .” If he had to pick a few, however, he says the ones that he particularly remembers include winning his first state title, being inducted into the Kansas Hall of Fame, and winning his first All-Around at the Grand. He added that he now considers being inducted into the Trapshooting Hall of Fame his most prized accomplishment.

He remembers early in his career watching Ray Stafford, Leo Harrison and Dan Orlich, who he calls true competitors and holds in high regard.  However, the shooters Campbell says he really has a lot of respect for are the ones out there shooting every weekend, working on their game and trying hard to improve. He says it can be difficult to break less-than-winning scores and keep coming back and trying again, and he respects the shooters who have the desire and ability to want to keep doing it and getting better.

Harlan says his parents have always been his biggest supporters, and they are proud of what he’s done. “They’ve always been there,” he said. “That doesn’t stop just because you’re an adult or a top shooter.” They like to watch him shoot and always keep up on how he’s doing. Harlan is happy they will get to see him inducted. He says his dad was a good teacher and gave him the good working basics in his shooting that allowed him to compete well anywhere. Campbell also noted that his dad still says to him before he goes to a shoot to remember what he’s going out there for, keep his head in the game for every target, and give it 110%. He reminds him that no one is making him do it; this is what he has chosen.

Others who have had a big influence on JR‘s shooting career include Randy Moeller and Rob Taylor. He says they have been there to help keep him focused and grounded and his attitude in check. “If my head got big, one of them would pop my bubble,” he said.

Campbell spends most of the year traveling to shoots and giving clinics, with 45 to 50 scheduled for 2012. He said the travel schedule can be tough but not unbearable, and anything he loses because of it, he certainly gains in other areas. “I really love what I’m doing,” he said. Campbell enjoys helping people master the game and is always looking for new ways to bridge the gap and help shooters understand and do better.

Having accomplished so many of the goals he has set for himself, Campbell said that he wants to keep doing what has brought him success: just focusing on the next target. He also wants to do more clinics and continue to make them better and more user-friendly. “I’m looking forward, not behind me,” he said. “I’m not ready to go yet.” He said the competition is getting tougher, and he’s planning to continue to be competitive and tenacious and keep the desire to win. With that being said, he feels like he’s been running hard for a long time and might enjoy a chance to take a breath and relax a bit. but he still hopes for more big wins on the horizon.

When asked what he wants to be remembered for. he said, “Somebody who worked hard at the game and gave 110%.” When he first started, he never thought he would become the shooter he is, and he’d like it if he could be considered among the top shooters of the game.

Harlan said he feels being inducted into the Hall of Fame is a very big honor and a validation of his career and all the time and work he’s put into it. Harlan once told T&F, “Every decision I’ve ever made—concerning work, a job, changing of a job, any type of personal relationship—shooting was always in the mix somewhere.” He says that for the times when he’s asked himself if that commitment was the right thing and if he was doing it for the right reasons, this honor helps him know it was.

Career Highlights

As a winner of Grand American championship events, Rick Marshall of Lincoln, Nebraska, has earned four Grand rings, his first for the 2000 Doubles Championship. Rain and lightning interrupted the nine-way tie-breaker, and it was held over to the next day. About an hour after the shootoff concluded, Rick received a phone call that son Tre had been born. That year Rick also was runnerup in the Clay Target Championship for the first of four times to date.

In 2006 he was All-Around and High-Over-All champion, and two years later he captured the Doubles title again.

During the 2005 Grand, the final one held in Vandalia, Ohio, Marshall accomplished the tremendous feat of running the first 700 targets of Grand Week. He broke 200 in the Singles Class Championship, 100 each in Tuesday’s Class Doubles and President’s Handicap, 200 in the Clay Target Championship, and then 100 in the Doubles Championship before missing the first target in Thursday’s handicap. The 100 from the 27 on Tuesday completed his Grand American Grand Slam.

That year was also the one he was presenting mentor and friend Frank Hoppe for induction into the Trapshooting Hall of Fame. He credits enshrinees Hoppe, Leo Harrison III and Britt Robinson plus numerous other accomplished shooters he watched and learned from over the years with helping advance his game.

Marshall collected his first Grand title, the sub-junior Doubles, in 1988. His initial Grand victory over the field came in 1996, when he won Preliminary Saturday’s handicap. He has claimed eight more top trophies during Preliminary-Week events, while his additional Grand-Week top awards include the Parliament Coach Handicap and White Flyer 2,200 in 2006 plus the Preliminary Handicap last year with 100 straight.

Through the 2015 target year, Marshall has earned 50 titles from eight of the ATA’s 10 Satellite Grands: six Autumn, eight Dixie, seven Great Lakes, two Northeastern, six Southern, 12 Southwestern, five Spring and four Western. At the 2013 Western tournament, he won the all-around with a perfect 400×400.

A member of the men’s All-American team every year since 1997 (all but one first-team selections), Marshall was captain in 2001 and 2002. He has been named to 24 teams total, including two sub-junior and three junior.

Stuart Welton and brother Tony worked at the Boise (ID) Gun Club as kids, and at the end of the day, father Dwayne would let them shoot a few rounds. In 1974 at age 12, Stu began his ATA career, quickly moving to the 27-yard line by age 14.

After his 1980 graduation, longtime shooter Bernie Voyles took Stu to the Grand. He won five trophies, including junior titles in the Doubles Championship, All-Around and High-Over-All.

Since then he has collected 40 more awards at the Grand. In 2009 he broke his first Grand 100 in doubles. He would go on to shoot two more that year, including in the Doubles Championship, where he emerged the winner after four extra rounds. Five years later he captured the Clay Target crown with 200 plus 450 more in a three-day shootoff over 49 others. He has also won the Champion of Champions twice, in 2007 and 2014. In all he has broken 200 in singles at the Grand 20 times, and he has had 11 twin-bird 100s at the tournament.

His Western Grand crowns include the 1992 and 2012 doubles plus the 2015 and 2018 singles. At Western Zone tournaments, Stuart has earned one singles, one handicap, two doubles and three all-around championships.

In 1979 Stuart claimed the Idaho junior crown. The next year, at age 17, he won the overall singles title with 200. Since then he has earned 34 additional Idaho championships. He has topped the feature 16s 11 more times and has five titles each in the handicap and doubles plus 13 in the all-around.

Stuart holds the ATA record for all-around average with .9841 in 2009, and his 2014 average of .9821 places eighth on the list. He was ATA leader in 2005 and 2009 and has earned three additional Trap & Field All-Around Average Awards.

Leading the ATA in doubles in 2009 with .9917 on 1,800 birds (seventh on the all-time list), Stu topped everyone in handicap in 2014 with .9678 on 3,200 (eighth overall). His 2009 singles average of .9970 on 3,000 targets places 10th in ATA records. He has logged singles averages of 99% or better 20 times since 1996 (including 12 seasons on a minimum of 2,500 targets).

Stu earned 11 open All-American team placements between 2004 and 2019. He was a member of the 1978 sub-junior team. In 1991 he completed his ATA Grand Slam with 100 in doubles.

In 2001 he and Ted Schlecht shot off for 25 rounds, the all-ATA one-day shootoff record, for the AA singles prize at the Idaho State Shoot. Stuart also holds the record for the longest doubles shootoff. After a four-way tie of 100s for the 2012 Western Grand title, he and Leo Harrison III went 15 rounds without a miss before Harrison forfeited.

In 1997 Stu broke 200 singles, 100 from the 27 and 100 doubles in the championship events during a weekend shoot at Twin Falls GC in Idaho.

Stu’s future goals include earning more Grand wins and gaining more shooting friendships.

Holly started shooting at Pine Belt Sportsman club in New Jersey in 199. She first began to compete in 1991 and has accumulated numerous accomplishments since that time.  She credits much of her success to the never-ending support of her family and especially her Grandfather, Charles Rush.

Early in her career, it became clear that Holly Paul would be a force to reckon with in the skeet shooting world. In August 1996, she became only the second woman and the first person from New Jersey to shoot a 400×400.  In 1998, she earned the title of New Jersey State High Overall Champion.

John Castillo was born in Eagle Lake where as a young boy he started shooting with a homemade slingshot. John didn’t see a gun until he was drafted and sent to Vietnam shortly after moving to Houston. When John returned from the Army he went to work for the Houston Fire Department and has since retired.

One of John’s fire buddies introduced him to shooting which over time put its hooks into John. Starting with local leagues and some small competitive shoots John began to realize his love of the game. In 1984 John started to get serious and put his tremendous work ethic into skeet practice ad competition. Along the way he started working for Briley on a part-time basis, a perfect mating of a competitive shooter that was interested in people and their shooting.

John caught fire i 1998 and 1999 winning the 28 ga silver and then the 28 ga Gold World World Championship. He never looked back after that. John has been on the Texas Open 1st Team numerous times, 3 as Captain.

John has made the Open All-American team numerous times including 3 First Open Teams.  Along with Texas State HOA Champion, John  has shot 4-400×400 and 1-500×500.

 

 

Sam did a little hunting as a teenager in his home town of Hagerstown, MD. , but the skeet bug didn’t bite until he stopped by the Ft. Ord, CA gun club while in the Army in 1983.

He saw people shooting and got on the field the following week.  With a little help from the locals, he managed to shoot a 23 in his first box and hasn’t put the gun down for an extended period since.

Reassigned to Ft. Richardson, AK. Sam braved the conditions and began to shoot registered skeet in 1986.  This year his target total went over 200,000.

Sam works hard all winter so he can play hard all summer.  If you’ve spent time with Sam, you know that he likes to keep to the same routine and that several cups of Dunkin” Donuts coffee are never far away.

In his early days, when shooting in C & B class, he was the tail-gunner with a veteran squad.  He worked his way to the front and has had many “regular” squad mates over the years.   As time goes by, the squad evolves but Sam keeps on going.

Not just a taker, Sam has worked behind the scenes helping run shoots at many clubs during the years.  He has served as a State Director for Maryland, a NSSA Director, and has also been the NSSA EC representative for Zone II.

On the national level, Sam has made the NSSA All American team for 20 consecutive years from 2000 to 2019, of which the last sixteen are Open Teams.

His World Championships include the Doubles and 28 Gauge events in 2009, and the 20 gauge event in 2016. Podium appearances at the World Shoot include 2nd places in 12 and 28 gauge, 3rds in Doubles, and .410 events. He was also the .410 Champion in the 2018 Mini World Shoot.

He has achieved the 400×400 Mt. Everest of skeet three times.

At the Zone II and State levels, he has been a “force to be reckoned with” for many years.  He has won 27 Zone II Championships (6 HOA); 40 Maryland State Championships (6 HOA); 23 Pennsylvania State Championships (7 HOA), and 7 Armed Forces Championships (1 HOA).

Sam was proudly inducted into the Maryland Skeet Hall of Fame in 2006 with his long-time shooting partner, and friend, Larry “Buddah” Seward.

He has been Maryland’s 1st Team Captain for 16 consecutive years, and has been a 1st Team member consecutively for 21 of his 23 consecutive years on State Teams.

Sam credits his success to his wife of over 30 years Kimmy, for keeping the home front anchored down, so he can travel and shoot without any worries. Also, all of his friends and squad mates for keeping things competitive and fun over the years!!

 

 

Lindsay Plesko began her shooting career in 2000 as a member of the Texase A&M Skeet Team. Her passion for skeet started after graduation when she joined a small gun club in Oklahoma where she actively supported skeet and new shooters by running leagues and fun shoots for several years.
