THIEF RIVER FALLS—Broken glasses are a setback when shooting clay targets, but Avory Erickson didn't let that stop him Tuesday afternoon at the Thief River Falls Trapshooting Club.

Compared to the challenges the Lincoln High School junior has faced in his 17 years, broken glasses are a minor inconvenience.

To prove it, Erickson proceeded to shatter a couple of targets without his glasses.

A member of the Thief River Falls trapshooting team in the burgeoning Minnesota State High School Clay Target League, Erickson shoots from a wheelchair. Born with spina bifida, a birth defect in which the spinal cord doesn't develop properly, he has proven that trapshooting is a sport anyone can enjoy.

How great for the young man.

However....

"To prove it, Erickson proceeded to shatter a couple of targets without his glasses."

Really?

I think he was saying that the broken glasses were just a minor issue compared to the others he has overcome.

At any rate like my Grandma would say "GOOD ON HIM!".
Keep at it son.
