    Born into a military family in Madison WI, moved to Heidelberg, Germany, until 1988 then moved to Georgetown Texas, before moving to Leesburg, VA in 1993. Attending Strayer University, major in business. Attended Loudoun County High and then Stone Bridge, was member of its first graduating class. Besides Paintball, my other sports are Baseball, Soccer and Hockey. I have been competitive in all of these sports until I was diagnosed with Becker’s a form of Muscular Dystrophy, which put me in a wheel chair in 2005. Overcoming the onslaught of the disease I was hired by Hogback Mountain Paintball in 2004 as a field manger. In 2006 I was promoted to CEO with full responsibility for all operations at Hogback. Major accomplishments include improvements in total operations, establishing maintenance programs for ATVs, Paintball Guns, and other field equipment, improved Hogback Mountain Web page, developed BIG GAME themes and & expanded Paintball fields from 10 to 15. Most importantly continued the traditions of Hogback Mountain Paintball by development of an overarching safety program that includes qualifying all the employees in Red Cross First Aid and CPR.

    Ritchie: Hi, my name is Ritchie; I am the team captain of Team Atrom, and now I am talking about how to shoot the gun. You have your marker already gassed up, have your mask on, take off the barrel cover, and you push the tank in your shoulder. So, in this way you can hold the gun only with one hand right on the rack. So, these fingers are free to move on the trigger. Make sure you switched on the marker, gas it on, and the way you aim is, you look straight over the barrel and go with the paintballs. Ill demonstrate that right now. John Greeley: Right now I want to show you how a pneumatic marker shoots and how an electronic high end marker shoots. At first, this is how a pneumatic marker shoots. And this is how a high end electronic marker shoots. Now, I am showing you how to reload a marker. You have your marker, and you take a pot from your battle pack which you have on the back. Open it and put in the hopper, then close a lid and throw it away; then you are ready to shoot again. Thats a proper way to shoot your marker.
