    Leo Harrison III has be selected to become a member of the 2010 class of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will be held in Springfield MO on Sunday, Jan 31, 2010. He joins Lela Hall Frank and C.E. Barnhart as the third trapshooter ever be honored. Not only is this a great honor for Leo, it is a highly visible recognition for the sport of trapshooting.

    I don't know Leo personaly, but have had the honor watching him shoot at the Grand 07,08&09. I think you could put a barrel on a fence post and Leo could break targets with it. Congtatulations on your latest accomplishment, well deserved.

    i first watched leo in the 80's shoot at the grand in ohio. at that time he was shooting a remington 1100. i was fortunate to meet and speak to him while he attended the wisconsin state shoot years later. i had asked him about a certain medical procedure and he took the time to discuss it with me for over 30 minutes. a friend of mine tied leo that day in the handicap event. the shoot off was at night and my friend was on 20 yards and leo on the 27. my friend beat leo that night. my friend told me how gracious leo was and encouraged my friend in his future shooting. as great a shooter that leo is, he is even a nicer person. leo is a true "Gentleman" in every sense of the word. i remember reading about leo in the american shotgunner magazine back in the 70's and 80's. they felt he was a up and comming shooter. if any of you have children starting out in this game, i highly reccomend taking them to a shoot and having them watch leo. he is a credit to our sport.

    As a graduate of one of Leo's "Elite Clinics" I think about Leo every time I pick my shotgun up. He is a fine gentleman and I enjoyed my day with him a great deal. Congratulations!!!

    Taking averything into consideration there is probably no one who is more deserving to be put into any trap shooting Hall of Fame than Leo Harrison III ... I can remember shooting many years ago with him at Graf's in Mexico Mo. in a sleet storm, he was shooting in a T shirt ... I told him he better get a jacket and he said if its to cold to shoot in a T shirt, then its too cold to shoot ... "Congratulations" ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
