    Due to a broken foot Seth wasn’t able to play football this fall. This has allowed him to be more active in shooting which he loves anyway.
    First shoot of the new season and he walks away with it. He took high overall shooter, was the high shooter in every discipline in his class, and lead the high overall winning team.
    Congrats buddy!

    We are so happy and proud for him. It's been a struggle and still a long road a head of him. He was born with club feet and has been through several surgeries with likely many more to come. He's an amazing athlete but his poor feet give him fits and he tends to break bones in his feet frequently. At 17 years old, 5'2, and 145 lbs he runs a 4.4 40, bench presses 255lbs, and squats 385lbs. Unfortunately he struggles in football, track, and wrestling due to the tendency to break bones in his feet. He's top notch in every sport he competes in despite his size but he has hell staying healthy. He's been known to not say anything and hide the pain throughout a season to get to finish playing, he never complains, and has a great attitude. Shooting is the only thing that keeps his sanity and can do it even when his feet are acting up.
    His dream is to go into the Airforce to fly jets, he has another appointment with another specialist in a few weeks to see if there is a surgery that will correct the bone placement so maybe he'll quit breaking bones and will help with the pain.
    I'm so proud of this kid and pray every day that he will be able to accomplish all the things he want's to do without limitations.

    Excellent work Seth! You’re a great example to others that have had an easier time. You’ll do well with your self motivation attitude!
    Best of luck with that next, hopefully last, surgery!

    Thanks y’all. He’s a heckava kid.
    I’m about to head back up to the gun club as he has a trap competition today in the trap league he joined. It’s an adult league so he’s the youngest out there by at least 20 years. He’s a dark horse coming in and I hope he goes out there and sets the bar for all us old guys

    He went 47/50 on handicap trap. Pretty dang solid shooting. He was excited to see that two of the kids on his 4-H shooting team joined up so he wasn’t the only kid there 1B2564D9-D4E5-44BF-948B-D798ECDA4C4F.jpeg 870E47A8-B7EA-4EEE-906E-8BAE51053E01.jpeg 656905E6-9E2C-40F3-BF52-8B43A35F3ABC.jpeg 0624D28E-75F3-48C7-9EBD-C6802C9460FA.jpeg

    Thank you Hoss and I’m so very sorry for y’alls loss. I’m sure he was and if given the opportunity would have grown into an amazing young man. I pray that you find comfort in the memories of the time he was here.
