My road in life has been direct.
Grew up in Fountain Hill, Arkansas, population: 150.
There was nothing to do except play sports, like basketball and baseball.
His uncle was on the amateur rodeo tour, so he had to pitch in and help out with the events.
When he was 14, he started riding and roping bulls.
Says through perseverance, he went from a kid with a hobby to a professional athlete.
Doesn't think his job is dangerous: "my mother would tell you different, but anything you're used to, good at, comfortable with-you don't see it as dangerous."
Hates seeing people getting discouraged from doing something they like just because it's not "popular."
Says people don't like to see others find success, but you can't let those naysayers get you down.
Keep following my journey
