Nerd Squad

Shotgun Team

Ryan Doyle

Ryan first picked up a shotgun when he was seven. He participated in all the sports but soon discovered his real passion was competitive shooting. In 2022 he joined the Etowah Valley Mambas SCTP team where he found success at the junior varsity level. Ryan continues to punch up in NSCA and you will see him at most of the major shoots. He also hopes to start shooting bunker trap soon. On his own initiative, Ryan was the instrumental force in starting his high school’s varsity shotgun team. Providence Christian Academy is one of the few teams in the metro-Atlanta area that offers Clay Target as a varsity sport. His team has really taken off and now has close to 30 student-athletes competing. He is a brand ambassador for FrogLube® gun cleaning products. Outside of shooting he also plays golf and maintains an A average. He is an honor student, VP of student council, and holds other positions of leadership in school as well. Ryan is an avid hunter and angler. He loves Jesus and is faithful to His teachings. After high school Ryan looks to shoot at the college level and pursue his interests in aeronautics, business, and theology. AMMO NERDS is honored to have such an outstanding young man representing us on the clay fields and in the classroom.

Jakob Duke

Jakob started in clay target shooting when he was 14 years old on the Lakeview Academy Clay Target Team. He came to the sport with a lot of natural talent but little experience. In the Winter of 2021 Jakob tried out for The Etowah Valley Mambas SCTP team. Shooting tournaments at the JV level, he won numerous awards and placed either individually or as a squad. When he turned 16 his shooting really took off after learning under top shooters like Kevin DeMichiel and Ross Wilson. Starting in the D classification of NSCA he quickly moved up to B class by racking up hardware and punches in the 2022 Seminole Cup, Ga State Championship, Trident Cup, AFS Championships and NWTF Turkey Shoot. In addition, he was a GA State 4-H Champion and placed 3rd nationally with his squad from Union County. In 2022 he also continued his success in SCTP and GISA. He was named to the 2022 SCTP All Scholastic Team. In his spare time Jakob enjoys the outdoors. He loves fishing, hunting, hiking, travelling and college football (Go Tigers!) He recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. He is on his school’s golf team. He attends Christ Place Baptist Church and spends his free time volunteering. He is a honor student with a 3.5 GPA and has a natural love of history. After high school Jakob wants to continue his shooting career in college. AMMO NERDS is proud to have Jakob on our Shotgun Squad and we look forward to watching him keep climbing in the sport.

Will Anderson

Will is a fantastic young man and shooter who is in his first year at Georgia College and State University. He is one of the anchors of that team and shoots for the Lake Oconee Shotgun Team in SCTP as well. He has been shooting competitively for about 5 years now and has racked up an impressive list of accomplishments. In 2019 Will competed on the SCTP National Championship team as a member of Lake Oconee. His squad also finished 4th at Nationals in 2022. He is a 4-time SCTP All-scholastic team member and a GA GISA All-State team member. His favorite discipline is FITASC and that is evidenced by his podium finish in the 2022 Seminole Cup. He currently holds endorsements from Team Muller Chokes as well as Team DuPont/Krieghoff. Will is a Biology Major, Chemistry Minor and on the pre-Med track. His goal is to become a Neurosurgeon. He serves on the Georgia College Council of Student Ambassadors. He is a Black Belt in TaeKwonDo and is learning other forms of Martial Arts. He is also a competitive swimmer. Ever since he began shooting, he has loved the competition and friendships that he has made along the way. We are very excited for the opportunity for him to represent AMMO NERDS!
