Schreiner student gets national shooting award

Kent Freeman and Dr. Tim Summerlin with Skeet Award

The National Skeet Shooting Association has named Schreiner University freshman Kent Freeman a 2007 All American. Freeman, of Katy, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Randy Freeman. He is a member of the Schreiner Shooting Sports Society, coached by Bill Thomas, who volunteers his time as well as his experience as a competitive shooter.

According to Thomas, the society was started in 2006 “to take advantage of the shooting facilities at the Hill Country Shooting Sports Center here in Kerrville.”

Freeman started shooting skeet four years ago.

“I entered my first tournament six months after I started,” said Freeman, who is now is the top collegiate shooter in the U.S. and captain of the NSSA 2007 Collegiate First Team.

NSSA also provided a plaque presented to Schreiner University and Freeman for display on campus.

“Excellence in any legitimate human pursuit is admirable,” said Schreiner University President Tim Summerlin.  “Although we do not yet have a long tradition of skeet shooting at Schreiner, I believe we are already beginning to establish one. And it is rewarding to know that Mr. Kent Freeman has already established a standard of excellence through this national recognition.”
