Broadwater, Tazza, the 5X Crowned Kings of Archery

They call him “The Freakshow” for a reason. Jesse Broadwater’s calm, cool demeanor and uncanny ability to break records under pressure has made him an icon in target archery. After a strong showing in previous years, the eyes and expectations of the archery world were already upon Jesse as he entered this season. 

“The Freakshow” delivered on those expectations, delivering solid performances shoot after shoot to earn the Shooter of the Year award from the National Field Archery Association (NFAA), the National Archery Association (NAA), and even from the Archery Shooters Association (ASA) where he was a newcomer in the K-50 3D class. Jesse is the first archer in history to claim the NFAA, NAA and an ASA Shooter of the Year titles all in the same year.


Tony Tazza hasn’t been shy about collecting titles this year, either. Tony walked away with the Archery Shooters Association (ASA) Shooter of the Year title as well, in the Senior Pro Class, in addition to claiming the distinction of Overall Winner in the 2016 IBO National Triple Crown.

Congratulations, Jesse and Tony, on your solid performances. We are proud to have both of you representing Team Hoyt. Get Serious. Get Hoyt.
