This jersey, this moment is one that I worked and trained for. You can't buy this. You can't acquire it through having the right family or knowing the right people. This is earned. Hard work. Determination. Hustle. This is mine. This is a 5 year goal- to be successful you have to surround yourself with a team that believes in you, your dreams and ability to make that a reality. I stepped up. Not held back by intimidation. In life you either do something or you don't. I choose to surround myself with people and companies that will help breed the mentality for success. I have no competition in life. It's me competing against myself to always bring my best to the table. My team- Swarovski Optik Hunting,Ruger, Hornady and Cabela's have believed in me and supported my dreams. This was our weekend as a team.
Team Ruger did awesome at our first PRS match. John, one of our engineers won the Production division and took 19th overall. After a rough day yesterday with some data issues, I took 46 out of 65 shooters. It was tons of fun and an absolute honor to shoot with some of the best in the nation. Thank you to Ruger, Swarovski Optik Hunting Hornady and Cabela'sfor supporting me in this journey. I'm already planning my next match!
It was my honor to give my best not for myself or for a winning score but for my team. Keep that in mind next time someone asks you for help. Don't just give them a hand, lift them up. We are not competing. We are family.
