Frontier Days and the Snake River Stampede (Nampa, Idaho) are his favorite rodeos – Cheyenne because of the history and Nampa because it’s a fun rodeo with good stock … Enjoys hunting for hogs and four-wheeling … Played football in high school and is a fan of the Dallas Cowboys … Enjoys golfing and hanging out with buddies he only gets to see while at rodeos … Favorite food is chicken fried steak … Favorite movie is “8 Seconds” … Listens to rock and rap music … His rodeo superstition is to not put his hat on the bed
