Dean Spiridon – Founder of Trapshooting Online, ATA All-American, All Pennsylvania and Virginia
Dean began registering ATA targets in 1993 and has since registered nearly 85,000 targets. A four time Amateur Trapshooting Association All-American (1 Sub-Junior, 3 Junior), Dean grew up in one of the most competitive trapshooting states in the country.
“Trapshooting has been very good to me. It doesn’t owe me anything, in fact I think I owe it quite a bit. The best way I can begin to fulfill that obligation is through this website. I hope to provide the trapshooting community with the web-based tools necessary to improve their skills and enjoy the sport. Trapshooting needs a way to keep the attention of its young participants, including those in the AIM program. I hope we can do this through the development of a trapshooting mobile app, a social network, and various other products that will make their experience memorable.” – Dean
Joe Pascoe – ATA All-American, All-State Pennsylvania and current Pennsylvania NW Zone Delegate
Joe has accomplished about as much as anyone could hope for at the young age of 28. He not only excels on the trap line, but also exemplifies what it means to be an All-American.
A 5-time Junior All-American (captain one time), Joe has also earned a spot on the Pennsylvania All-State Team 14 times and was the 2000 PSSA Trapshooter of the Year. Equally impressive is that he completed the ATA Grand Slam on July 15, 2001 with a 100 from the 27 at the West Virginia State Shoot…..
Aaron Willoughby – Kentucky All-State Shooter, Writer, and Kolar Sales Expert
An active member of the ATA since 1995, Aaron has competed in the junior and men’s ranks. During this time, he has registered nearly 100,000+ ATA tournament targets. In the last 7 years, Aaron has been involved in the trapshooting service industry, dealing in sales and gunsmithing.
Aaron’s experience goes well beyond the trap line. In addition to Trapshooting Online, he is currently a monthly columnist for “Trap and Field” magazine, the official publication of the Amateur Trapshooting Association.
Dan Murphy – ATA All-American, All-Wisconsin Shooter, and former ATA Delegate
From 1996-2000, Dan earned a spot on five ATA All-American First Teams. Throughout his career, Dan also was named to seven Wisconsin All-State teams, including 4 times as Junior captain and once as Men’s Co-Captain.
In 2002, Dan reached the ultimate career achievement when he completed his ATA Grand Slam with 100×100 from 27 yards at Spanish Fork, Utah. This made him the 301st in ATA history to reach that mark. Dan’s Grand Slam also made him the 6th ever as well as the youngest in Wisconsin trap history to achieve that feat.
Dan’s accomplishments do not stop with ATA trap. He took his skills to the international level in 1998 at the USA Shooting Junior Olympics International Single Trap event where he was a Silver Medalist.
