We are proud to announce that Joe Pascoe has joined us here at Trapshooting Online.com as a contributor to our “Ask the All-Americans” column. Joe brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the site and we are excited to have him as a part of our team.
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….. and we all know how difficult it is to shoot there!
In 2001, Joe was the Junior Champion in the Grand American Handicap, an event that every trapshooter dreams of winning. Some of Joe’s other accomplishments include:
- Over 100 Trophies at Satellite Grands (Southern, South Western, Spring, Western, Great Lakes, North Eastern).
- Over 60 Trophies at the Pennsylvania State Shoot.
- Has competed in 18 states including: Pennsylvania, New York, Maine, Connecticut, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Florida, Texas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona.
- Shot 76,300 Singles, 64,450 Handicap, and 56,050 Doubles.
Not to be forgotten are those who have helped him achieve all of these accolades. Joe comes from a trapshooting family, like so many others who participate in our great game. Joe is the son of All-American and PSSA Hall of Fame Inductee Frank Pascoe and former Women’s All-American Belinda Pascoe. His brother Kenny is a former All-American and sister Kristin was the 1998 Women’s Grand American Handicap Champion.
Since graduating from Slippery Rock University in 2007 with a BS in Business Management, Joe has worked as the Office Manager of Pascoe Builders, LLC, a family owned construction company in New Castle, PA.
In September of 2010, Joe married his wife Megan and they now have a Dachshund Puppy named Maggie, as well as many, many guns!
When asked his shooting philosophy, Joe’s advice is to “find enjoyment in the proper and perfect execution of every shot throughout the round and the score will happen automatically.”
We look forward to learning more from Joe on TrapshootingOnline.com!
