What is your future in the sport of rodeo? Where would you like to see it go? I am going to continue to college rodeo for NJC and hopefully continue my career onto the PRCA.

What is your ultimate goal as you continue competing in rodeos? Any cowboy’s goal is to be a World Champion, but I’m taking it one step at a time.

Favorite aspect of rodeo: Being with my buddies and getting to rope.

Best rodeo memory: Short round of the 2012 NLBFR. I roped really good all week and it felt really good to finally accomplish my goal of winning the world.

Notable achievements in the sport: 2012 NLBRA Calf Roping Average and World Champion, 2012 NHSFRA Qualifier in the calf roping, 4x SDHSRA Finals qualifier, 4x SDHSRA Finals Short Round Qualifier, Won the short round in the steer wrestling at the SDHSRA finals, SDRA finals Qualifier in the calf roping, won the second round of the SDRA Finals in the calf roping, 3x member of the Wrangler Top Hand Team (NLBRA).

Timed-event competitors: Tell us about your horse(s): My calf horse is a 14 year old black gelding called Cody. I’ve roped on him since I was 8 and he was 4. We have a very special connection. He’s a lot of fun to rope on. My steer wrestling horse is a 20 year old sorrel gelding called Leo. Leon Etzkorn let me get on him in June. I really get along with him well and he’s still got plenty of gas. It made the bull dogging a lot of fun. My heel horse is an 8 year old bay I call Lonesome. We’ve had him since he was weanling and he really works well for me.

Have you attended any rodeo schools? If so, which ones? I’ve been to Brent Lewis’s calf roping school 5 times. Allan and Gordon Good, along with Carson and Denton, taught me how to steer wrestle.

Role models/mentors: I have quite a few. Brent Lewis has been a major influence on my roping. He is the master if there ever was one. Also Allan and Gordon Good have been big influence on me, teaching me how to rodeo. Brent Belkham has taught a lot about both roping and rodeoing and being a horseman.

What do you like to do when you’re not competing? I like to hunt, fish, and ride colts.
