Jack Miller is the person in charge of the Chip & Crack youth program at the X-line gun club in Kankakee, IL. This past weekend he took his group to the Illinois Central Zone Shoot in Peoria, IL. The teams success is a testament to the hard work and devotion of Jack. He works tirelessly with the youth and he deserves a huge shout out for his efforts. The thrill of this fabulous display the kids put on had to make Jack and the and the parents feeling sky high. Wish Jack and the C&C's the best of luck.

Jack is a wonderful person who has dedicated more time to youth trapshooting than most could ever dream of. I moved to this area last year and shoot at X Line frequently. He runs a great facility and has taught a lot of great shooters over the years (including Tony Fortino). He deserves every bit of recognition and more.

Jack is a patient instructor and teaches the guys and gals not just the proper way to shoot but he also focuses on safety and courtesy.

We need more mentors like Jack. Youth programs must be started or expanded to resuscitate our sport. Next shoot look around at the age of the participants. We need an influx of new shooters. Not only to help our sport grow, but these young people will grow up to be voters influenced by something other than left wing ideology.

Big jack deserves a spot in the Illinois trapshooters hall of fame, for all he’s done for youth in the sport, he’s as good as they get for coaching kids and a hell of a man.
