Daniell 2015Daniell also graduated college with a major in English in May 2015.  She completed her teaching assignment in Southeast Asia and is back working on her Masters in Education.  She is an amazing young woman.

DSC_0158Jordan has been attending school in California, and through her school  and the HSD program will be studying in Japan!  Although her school does not have archery, Jordan continues to be involved in sports.  She competed on the cross country track and soccer teams and acted in a play. She remains an amazing student achieving all A’s in her first year.  She has the love and support of her parents and an incredibly strong faith in God.

Tyler continues to attend Emmanuel College where he earned a scholarship due to his scholastic achievement and his excellent archery skills.  Still an excellent archer, he has also been assisting his college coach and  providing coaching to students with Hidden Gems.  We are very proud of him.
 Perez boys
Enrique is a remarkable young man who is a college student, Assistant Director of a CAMBA Beacon program, a very strong example of manhood for his younger brothers Gabriel and Jonathan and support to his mother.  We are very proud of him.



CJ also attends college and his pre-med studies make it difficult for him to keep up with his archery.  CJ is nothing if not focused.  It will all pay off as Dr. CJ will no doubt, one day save many lives.



Christian aka Kit is an incredibly generous, smart, disciplined young man and a strong archer.  He is attending University in Texas where he was accepted to their  prestigious engineering program.  He is doing a great job and we are proud of him. He will do great things on and off the archery field.



Shaafi doesn’t get to many tournament these days given his rigorous college schedule in the field of aeronautics.  The sky is not limit for Shaafi. Look out world.


                IMG_1026Keshon pops in every now and then with news about his life and to see if he can still hit the bulls-eye (which he can).  He is doing well and we are proud of him.



DSC_5238Andrea is a college freshman with the intention of becoming a teacher.  She gets great grades and occasionally gets to compete.  We are very proud of her and know that any student who gets Andrea as their teacher will be very lucky indeed.  She is an incredible young woman.


Tribute to Shiloh Baptiste – Gone but not forgotten.

Shiloh BaptisteShiloh was one of Coach Brown’s first students. He was an excellent archer, competed in several local and national tournaments and took home more than a few trophies. Shiloh attended New York University Poly and majored in Mechanical Engineering. Shiloh developed aplastic anemia and although the condition often made him tired, he was strong in spirit and mind; always good-natured, hopeful and optimistic.  In April of 2012, Shiloh passed away.  Shiloh is loved and missed by his parents, brother, team mates, Coach Brown and all who had the good fortune to know him. Be at peace.
