GIANTS Scholarship pupil Richard Lopag has scooped the prestigious top gun award at a national camp.
It is the highest individual honour a player can receive at this level, with places on the camp restricted to the top 40 players in their age group in the country.
Lopag was presented with a silver salver to acknowledge his achievement at the Under 15s camp from former Great Britain star Mike Forshaw at the end of the national training camp at St Mary's in Sheffield.
It is just the latest honour for Lopag, who already holds the world record for the number of tries in a season (169) and most hat tricks in a season (43).
"This is another fantastic achievement for Richard," said Giants football manager Stuart Sheard.
"He is not playing for a club side right now, he is training once a week with the Giants and is working very hard.
"So we would like to think we are playing a small part in his continuing development.
"He is a player with outstanding natural ability, but is also prepared to work hard to improve his game.
"His many achievements are a reward for those efforts."
Previous national top gun winners include the likes of Kevin Sinfield and Chev Walker, who were members of the Leeds' side who have just won the Grand Final.
