Personal
5-10, 180 ... Single … Hobbies include all sports, cheering for the Dallas Cowboys and Arkansas Razorbacks and playing PlayStation games … Son of Irma and Alvin James … His older sister, Shawn, competed in high school rodeos, and Cody, some 13 years younger, spent his early years traveling to high school rodeos with his family … Traveled with Boyd Brooks, Ricky Hyde and Mike Johnson during his rookie season in 2006 when he came closest to qualifying for the Wrangler NFR … Was afflicted with Epstein-Barr virus, a type of mono, when he was 13. With no known cure, it took nearly 18 months for the virus to run its course. He couldn’t compete in any sports and was home-schooled during that time, too fatigued to attend his regular school
