What are you thankful for? I’m thankful for my health, my family, and everything thing else that I’ve been blessed with.
What do you sometimes take for granted? Life!! Sometimes you don’t realize how precious your time is on this earth and it can be taken from you any given day.
How does your faith tie into your rodeo philosophy or mindset? My Faith has everything to do with my roping– it keeps me humble and keeps my priorities straight. My Faith helps me not to get too down on myself when I’m not doing well.

What advice would you give up and coming, or beginning ropers? The harder you work at it, the better you’ll get. It’s up to you to determine how good you want to be, and how much effort you’re willing to put into it. No one can do the work for you. You don’t have to be a natural at roping to be good at it. But, if you work hard at it, will eventually pay off for you.
What do you want to be remembered for? As far as roping goes, I guess I’d like people to think of me as a good roper and a good horseman. But more importantly, a good father to my sons.
Why is Go Rope Clothing Co. more than just an apparel line to you? I really like the story behind it. The ability to “go rope” is not something that you should take for granted. We, as team ropers, are truly blessed to be able to compete in this sport we love.
