Daylon Mahn

Daylon is seventeen years old and has been shooting sporting clays for The Kings Academy for five years now. Ever since Daylon was little he has always enjoyed dove and duck hunting and once he started attending The Kings Academy he wanted to try out sporting clays. As he started to come to the schools practices, Daylon realized this was something he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Daylon did not automatically shoot in the high eighties or nineties when he first started shooting, but instead had to work for it, and get better at what he loves. Throughout the past five years of Daylon shooting sporting clays, he has received many awards such as placing in the top three many times in the SCYSF (South Carolina Youth Shooting Foundation), placing in the top ten multiple times in SCSCA Circuit Shoot standings, SCISA State Champions for 2017 and 2018, and SCTP (Scholastic Clay Target Program) National, 4th in the High School division and 5th in the JV division for 2017. Daylon has received many of these achievements by setting goals and striving to accomplish them. Daylon plans to continue to shoot sporting clays on a college team, and to one day shoot in the professional circuit. Until then, Daylon will always love sporting clays and continue to set goals for himself to get better at sporting clays.
