Personal
Brian attended South Dakota State University for two years majoring in Agriculture, before he transferred to Jacksonville State University.  At JSU he majored in Emergency Management and shot on their NCAA rifle team.  Today, Brain does quite a bit of farming, mainly wheat.  Due to his remote location, Brian built a range on his farm in order to train everyday.  He also is an avid archer and began shooting through his love of archery.  Brian made his first national team in free pistol when he had only been shooting for three months.  He hunts “anything that moves” and has marked “too many trophies to list.”
