The AZ Scorpions Junior Highpower Rifle Team is raffling off a new Armalite AR15 A2 National Match service rifle equipped with a new leather Rob Brown National Match service rifle sling which was donated by Ron Brown slings. 

Proceeds are used to help send the AZ Scorpions back to Camp Perry Ohio in 2022. This year we had a successful trip to Camp Perry and the team brought 11 juniors to the National Service Rifle Championships.

The AZ Scorpions competed in several events and finished 4th in the National Trophy Team Match among Junior teams earning Medals for their finish. Coached by Head Coach Ken Russo and AZ Scorpions Director, Randy Jackovich.

In Paired two man teams during the Junior Freedom Fire Match, lead team Jacob Blackman and Team Captain Albert Rivera Jr, finished 6th out of 56 teams, with Jacob shooting a personal best score of 495-16x out of 500. Team was awarded Freedom Fire medals for finishing in the top 10. 
Coached by Head Coach Ken Russo

Several new team members shot personal bests while at Camp Perry this year. 

Junior Jacob Blackman earned his second President’s Hundred Medal this year, finishing 26th overall.

We’re looking forward for Camp Perry in 2022 and hopefully a shot at the national junior team title.

Drawing for the rifle will be at Ben Avery shooting range in Phoenix in October during the Washington’s Birthday rifle match which was rescheduled because of Covid. See attached event flyer. 

Tickets are $5 each, or 5 for $20 
Tickets may be purchased online by following this link. Winner need not be present and out of state winners, we pick up the FFL shipping to your local FFL dealer.


Thank you in advance for your support of a great junior shooting team.

Kind regards,
Ken Russo
Head Coach,
