Meet the Coaches!
Hi everyone! We wanted to provide an update to all our donors and website viewers of how our FundRAZOR crowdfunding campaign is going thus far! So far, we have raised more than $900, which is INCREDIBLE! We want to give a huge shout out to everyone who has donated to our cause already as it means the world to us. From everyone on the Shotgun Sports team, THANK YOU SO MUCH! If you haven’t already, we highly encourage you to share our campaign page (https://fundrazor.uark.edu/shotgunsports) on your social media accounts and with friends and family. We are only one week into our campaign and have a long way to go to hit our goal in the next three weeks!
For this update, we wanted to put a spotlight on our coaches who work hard to ensure our team is competing at our absolute best. These individuals, most of them alumni, take extra time out of their schedules to work with our shooters individually on all disciplines. Two of our coaches compete at the national level and one of them at the Olympic level. We have some extremely talented people that we are lucky enough to call our coaches and our friends. Below you will find some background information on these outstanding individuals.
Preston Spainhour – Coach [Former President] (Alumni)
Preston Spainhour is perhaps our most decorated alumni and coach. To this day, Preston makes an active commitment to our team to ensure we are improving our shooting skills and have the necessary resources to complete. He loves to help us any way he can and often brings all our gear and equipment to tournaments in his own personal trailer. He donates funds and tries his best to make sure our team is functioning to the best of its ability. Check out this YouTube video of a UATV interview with Preston when he was an undergraduate student. He is an extremely competitive shooter who competes at the Olympic level to this day.
Callan Seale – Coach
Callan Seale is from Dripping Springs, Texas and started her shooting career in her freshman year of high school. Since then, Callan has won many notable awards in competitions locally, nationally, and abroad. She received the Oklahoma Regional’s Central State Lady Champion, Schreiner Shoot-out's High Over-all (100/100) and Kill Phil’s Je. Champion, Double AA1, and Double Lady Champion. She desires to be a mentor, friend, and example for all of those around her and use her experiences to help other shooters. She is a renowned shooter and former assistant coach of the Gebben Miles Shooting Academy.
Coleman Jarvis – Coach (Alumni)
Coleman Jarvis is from Prairie Grove, Arkansas and started shooting competitively in high school on the 4H team. He continued shooting through college and joined the Shotgun Sports Club when he transferred to the University of Arkansas during his sophomore year. He says he has never felt more welcomed in his life when he initially joined the team. Coleman stayed with the team until he graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2018 with a degree in biology. He is still actively supporting the team and has taken the role of a coach by teaching new members how to shoot new disciplines and how to enroll and compete in tournaments.
