San Antonio, Texas - Brian Burrows from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs was perfect. Firing a flawless four rounds at the ACUI Clay Target Championships in San Antonio, the USA Shooting National Team member scored a stellar 100 points to take the top spot heading into the men's finals.
Nipping at his heels was Southeastern Illinois' Matt Perkins followed by four other shooters who managed to fire an impressive collection of 98s themselves. Though eager to claim the International Trap title, their only hope was for the Brian to slip up in the finals, lose his head and fall from his sudden state of grace.
There would be one last round. Twenty-five more shots for the top six shooters. They would have to be perfect and Brian would have to stumble. It was a lot to ask after already taking a 100 shots over the course of the day. But stumble he did.
