Nunn Receives Second Team All-American Honors
Army West Point Rifle fistie co-captain Payne Nunn has been named to the Second Team All American team in Air Rifle by the NRA and received honorable mention All-American honors from the CRCA. "I am incredibly proud of Payne," head coach Web Wright said. "This is a great honor." The Virginilina, Va., native had a strong final campaign for the Black Knights, helping guide a young group to its first NCAA Championship appearance since the 2013-14 season. "He arrived at West Point with little experience, but he had a lot of drive and work ethic." Wright said. "He was a walk-on who listened and took to heart what I told him and within a season, he was traveling with the team. By his yearling year, he made the conference finals. By his junior year, he qualified for NCAAs as an individual competitor. In his firstie year, he motivated the team to set multiple program records and a berth into the program's first NCAA Championship since 2014." Nunn set the Army program record in air rifle with a 597 score against North Carolina State earlier this season. Read more.
