Federal Premium Mourns the Loss of Legendary Trapshooter Leo Harrison

FederalPremium.com

ANOKA, Minn. --(Ammoland.com)- Trapshooting legend Leo Harrison III died Thursday, Aug. 22 2013 at age 56.

The longtime Federal-sponsored shooter made the Amateur Trapshooting Association’s All American team 40 times and was named All American Team Captain 12 times.

He won 27 Grand American Championships, two Australian National titles and three New Zealand National titles. Harrison was inducted to the ATA Hall of Fame in 1998 and holds a World Record for breaking 992 clays out of 1,000. He will be missed as a great ambassador of the shooting sports who was always willing to donate his time to help youth and new shooters.

It is with deep sadness that Federal Premium Ammunition must acknowledge the passing of dear friend and trapshooting legend Leo Harrison III. The hall-of-fame shooter died Thursday, Aug. 22 at age 56, after falling ill during the 2013 Grand American Trapshooting Championship in early August.

Harrison started shooting trap in 1968, kicking off a career that would ultimately span more than 45 years. In that time, the longtime Federal Premium-sponsored shooter made the Amateur Trapshooting Association’s All American team 40 times and was named All American Team Captain 12 times. He won 27 Grand American Championships, two Australian National titles and three New Zealand National titles. Harrison was inducted to the ATA Trapshooting Hall of Fame in 1998 and holds a World Record for breaking 992 clays out of 1,000 in the High Overall event at the Grand American.

In addition to his accomplishments, he made some of his greatest contributions to the shooting sports when he wasn’t at the line.

“He was a great ambassador for our sport,” said friend and Federal Premium Shooting Promotions Manager Devon Harris. “He knew he had a gift and would do anything to help a new shooter get started. Leo always donated his time to help young people learn how to shoot, giving free lessons to kids. His loss will be felt deeply by Federal Premium, the industry, and especially the Federal Shooting Team. We’re a big family and we’ll all miss him dearly.”

Harrison, a longtime resident of New London, Mo. is survived by his wife, Karla, and daughters Laura and Sarah.
