Personal
5-11, 175 … Parents Jeff and Susan Sechrist, sister, Paige … Got into rodeo because his dad competed in calf roping and his parents say a rope was the first thing he grabbed when brought home from being born … Nickname is Smurf because when he was born, he was “short, chubby and had blue eyes” … Started competing when he was 5-6 years old … Describes his roping style as aggressive … Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days is his favorite rodeo because the calves are bigger and he won the second round in 2016 … Looks up to NFR qualifiers Jerome Schneeberger, Scott Kormos and Hunter Herrin …Graduated from Boone-Apache High School (Apache, Okla.) in 2011 with a class of 45 students … Earned a BA in criminal justice while attending Western Oklahoma State University (2011-2015) and Northwestern Oklahoma State University (2016) … Trains horses for a living … Will use the same powder bottle or same string if he’s been competing well while using them … Enjoys riding horses and hunting for deer and coyotes while at home … Likes to play golf and Xbox, particularly “Call of Duty,” while traveling to rodeos … Enjoys reading ProRodeo Sports News … Is a fan of the Oklahoma Sooners … Favorite food is steak … Favorite movie is Lonesome Dove … Listens to old-school rap and rock music
