  1. Coach Josh Littrell is heading up this program for the Ray-Pec School District! Way to go, Josh! I hope a bunch of kids get involved!

  2. I wish my schools had it when I was a kid. I'm addicted to archery but really didn't discover it until years out of school. This is a great program and should be in every school I think. No sights just all instinctive shooting. It'll help get the kids off the couch and from in front of the video games and TV.
