Fishburne Military School rifle team again best in Virginia
Brian Draper and his teammates on the Fishburne Military School rifle team would soon be taking aim with rifles at targets 50 feet away.
In the here and now, it’s the calm before the storm.
“They get dressed, get their lanes set up, and then they’ll actually lay down and almost fall asleep, and some of them will fall asleep. Draper is famous for it. He falls asleep almost every time,” said Brandon Mawyer, the coach of the Fishburne rifle team, as his marksmen were preparing for their turn in the 2016 Virginia Military Schools Rifle League state championships, held Feb. 9 at the rifle range on the Waynesboro FMS campus.
