In 2013, the shooting sports lost a tremendous ambassador with the passing of legendary exhibition shooter Tom Knapp. To honor his memory and continue his legacy of stewardship, Champion® Traps and Targets and Federal Premium® Ammunition teamed to create the Tom Knapp Memorial Scholarship. With the support of his wife, Champion extended Knapp’s licensed products program to fund $10,000 in scholarships for college-bound student-athletes. Four scholarship winners, two boys and two girls, will each be awarded $2,500 scholarships and will be chosen from applicants involved in the Minnesota State High School Clay Target League. Scholarship winners will receive their awards at the League Championships in June 2015.

ANOKA, MN - Feb. 5, 2015 - The shooting sports lost a tremendous ambassador, teacher and friend in 2013 with the passing of exhibition shooter Tom Knapp. His combination of shooting skills and stage presence inspired an entire generation of new shooters.

For more than a decade, Knapp represented these brands around the world at live exhibitions, on television and at countless consumer and trade shows.
