BENAVIDES, Texas — A Benavides teen shot his way to the top at the National Junior Olympics for skeet shooting.

"I started off with a little sporting clay match that we did and just took place from there," Garza said.

Garza said his dad started a 4-H shooting club where he spent his time honing in on his craft.

Eventually climbing to the top at the National Junior Olympics.

He said he had to shoot 25 targets.

"You have a delay of three seconds and then we call pull," Garza said.

"You just better be ready," he said. 

Garza said out of 60 competitors from all over the U.S. he took home the silver.

"It's a feeling that, that's just amazing and then especially when you get a medal," he said.

"I'm gonna keep on doing this and my dream is to win and Olympic medal one day," Garza said.
