    Thought this deserved it's own thread. Anthony Fortino from Kankakee, Il. wins the CTC and the Doubles Championship!!! Great shooting Tony, that's an amazing feat at any age, but for you to win the two gold rings is awesome. Congratulations young man, see you at DGSC next month for the Northern Zone. Harv Shell

    Great shooting doesn't even come close to your accomplishment ! You have showcased your ability for a few years and I really thought you would win a ring last. Year. AThread on this forum talked. About the next great young shotter, the next Leo or Harlen, Well you won't be the next Harlen or Leo you will be the next Tony Fortino!,,, As Leo once said there's room at the top so enjoy your trapshooting future.

    Recently, I had a thread asking who would be the next Leo in trapshooting? If you recall, the shooter who originally predicted to watch a young kid years ago by the name of Leo Harrison. Recently, he also predicted the next Leo in the sport of trapshooting would be Anthony Fortino.

    This guy seems to know what he's talking about. Congratulations to Anthony Fortino.

    Not a great pic but it is of the Clay Target Championship shoot-offs last night. Anthony Fortino is on the right in the red Perazzi t-shirt and Matt Bartholow is just to the left of him with the black vest on over his red Winchester shirt.

    Tony has proven the last couple years, it's the Indian and not so much the arrow.

    Wow!!! What a great display of young talent.


    I must say, watching him in the CTC the other night, I have never seen someone appear so relaxed with so much pressure. He was laughing and carrying on with his group while the other competitors seemed to be a little stressed in the moment. This young man definitely has the skills to be a force in this sport. Lets hope he continues to compete for a long time.

    Thanks for the update Hap.
