Paso Robles, CA – Weatherby announces the addition of professional snowboarder Scotty Lago to Team Weatherby, a select group of celebrities who serve as spokespersons for the legendary firearms company.

Lago is a top-ranked professional, and one of the most decorated and respected snowboard veterans actively competing. Scotty, who spent his early years as a professional winning halfpipe and quarterpipe competitions, has also found his place in films such as That’s It That’s All and The Art of Flight in recent years.

At the age of 17, Scotty was the World Quarterpipe Champion and his run of competition wins took off from there. Since then he has collected 4 X-Games medals, 3 Winter Dew Tour medals, 1st place at the 2012 Toyota Big Air, 2 podium finishes at the Burton US Open, a Bronze Medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, BC, and many more.

No matter how big the stage or how many medals he has won, Scotty has always found peace by being in the outdoors and hunting at home in New Hampshire with friends and family.

“It was evident very quickly after meeting Scotty just how passionate he is about hunting.” said Adam Weatherby, Executive Vice President and COO for Weatherby, Inc. “Like the other members of Team Weatherby, he has found success professionally but still has his roots in the outdoors.”

Lago commented, “I grew up hunting and shooting, it’s something that has always kept me grounded. When Weatherby approached me, I knew it was the perfect fit. Their reputation and the quality of their firearms is legendary, who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?”

Other Team Weatherby members: Jessie Duff, World Champion Professional Shooter; Willie Bloomquist, Major League Baseball player; Luke Branquinho, Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association World Champion Steer Wrestler; Chad Mendes, Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight title contender; Bear Pascoe, World Champion National Football League player; and Darryl Worley, country music artist.

Why would Weatherby hire a professional snowboarder, a pro baseball player, a Ultimate Fighting champ, a football player, and a singer as spokes persons? No wonder Weatherby cost so much.
