Frank Hoppe didn’t set out to be the legend among Nebraska trapshooters.
But in winning one event at a time over five decades, Hoppe became the most decorated Nebraska trapshooter of his era. He was a member of 28 All-America teams since 1976, winning 45 Grand American titles. He won more than 50 Nebraska state championship trophies since 1973, plus 264 championships in other states. He was captain of the All-America team in 1999. He was inducted into the national Trapshooting Hall of Fame in 2005.
