ANOKA, Minnesota – January 8, 2021 – The list of Team Federal competition wins for Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays in 2020 is long and impressive. Season highlights included Federal sponsored shooters winning big at the 2020 National Sporting Clays Championships and the 2020 Main World Skeet Championships, plus many other competitions across the country.
“It was a great year for Team Federal, considering the circumstances and all the shoots that were canceled, with many of our team members being selected to their All American Teams,” said Mike Hampton Sr., Team Federal’s Manager for Shotgun Sports. “We are very proud of our sponsored shotgun sport shooters on Team Federal. They are great role models, good sportsmen, high in morals and integrity. And after all that, they are great shots and are helpful and approachable.”
Hampton reported many notable accomplishments from the team in 2020. In Trap, both Aaron Willoughby and Grayson Stuart completed their Grand Slam, and Ray Stafford was selected as Team Captain of the Senior Vet Team. In Skeet, Jason Ward won the World Champion title in the 28-gauge division of the 2020 Main World Skeet Championships, and Paul Giambrone was named World Champion in the Champion of Champions event.

We also look forward to seeing Derrick and other USA Shooting team members represent the U.S.A. in Tokyo in July 2021,” said Federal’s Vice President of Marketing Jason Nash. “We are proud of their choice to shoot our products, and we look forward to seeing many competition wins throughout 2021.”
