NRA recognizes best of the best in collegiate rifle after NCAA championships

2014 NRA All-American Smallbore First Team

Murray, Kentucky - Following West Virginia University clinching their 16th NCAA Rifle national title, the most in the sport's history, the top rifle shooters in college sports gathered for the closing NRA banquet, where the 2014 NRA All-American teams were announced.

Started in 1936, the All-American award honors collegiate shooters in the rifle, pistol, and shotgun disciplines. Pistol All-Americans were announced simultaneously down at the NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Championships at Ft. Benning. Shotgun All-American awards were presented a couple weeks later at ACUI Clay Target Championships.

Who, exactly, becomes an NRA-All American? The prestigious award takes a shooter's entire season and academic performance into account. Only after careful consideration by the Collegiate Programs Committee, comprised of individuals well known in the competitive shooting community (most are former All-Americans, have coached All-Americans, or both), recipients are selected.

Here are the shooters who both accomplished remarkable shooting feats during a shooting season and demonstrated exceptional leadership and character beyond the firing line:
