The crowd couldn’t help but cheer when Brandon Austin hit his final clay target. The target was his 100th in a row and capped his championship win of the 2018 Illinois 4-H State 4-H Shotgun Shoot held September 15 in Bunker Hill.
“I’m still shaking,” the teen said after hitting the final target. “I’ve never hit 100 in a row, or even 75 in a row.”
The teen was humble in his acknowledgment of the talent on display at the annual 4-H contest. “There are some competitors here that I know are better shooters than me,” Brandon said.
