Blaser is pleased to announce Sidney Coffin as the newest member of Team Blaser. Coffin specializes in Bunker Trap, also known as International Trap, a sport in which clays move at 68 mph or faster and at wider angles than American Trap. She is a two-time member of the Junior National Team with the 2023 team selection matches underway and has her sights set on the 2024 Olympics.
A native Texan and current freshman at Schreiner University in Kerrville, Coffin shoots on the university’s shotgun team. His first exposure to shotgun shooting was in seventh grade when he joined the 4-H shooting program and he never looked back.
“Sidney is an exceptional talent, and we are proud to welcome him to Team Blaser and support his efforts at Bunker Trap tournaments in the US as he looks to Paris in 2024,” said Jason Evans, CEO of Blazer Group.
A 2022 NSCA Scholarship recipient, Coffin was a 2020 US Junior Olympic Trials Team Selection gold medalist and has won numerous state and national shooting championships. He currently shoots a Blaser F3 Supersport shotgun.
“When I visited Blaser USA corporate headquarters for the first time, I had a great feeling overall, about everything,” said Coffin. “The people there are wonderful and very supportive of my hard work. I am honored and proud to be part of your team and I love photographing my F3 Supersport.”
When not playing plate, Sidney can be found hunting, fishing, or playing volleyball, basketball, or softball, among other sports.
