Columbus, Ohio - Once this year's NCAA Rifle Championships wrapped up, the NRA held their 2012 All-American banquet at Ohio State University to honor the top rifle shooters from this past year.

Created in 1936, the All-American award honors collegiate shooters in the rifle, pistol, and shotgun disciplines. Pistol All-Americans will be announced this next week at the conclusion of the NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Championships at Ft. Benning. Shotgun All-Americans are announced after the ACUI Clay Target Championships held at the end of the month.

NRA's Collegiate Programs Committee select award recipients and are comprised of individuals well known in the competitive shooting community. Some committee members are former All-Americans, have served as coaches of All-Americans, or both.

The program is committed to recognizing and honoring collegians who have performed remarkable shooting feats during a shooting season while demonstrating exceptional leadership and character.
