A Message from the Coach

Thank you for your interest in the OSU Rodeo program! We are committed to helping each and every student athlete achieve their goals both in the classroom and the arena. We will work together to not only advance your talents in the arena, but also to give you a better understanding of the industry as a whole.

I competed for the rodeo team during my time at OSU from 1996-1998. I have remained active as a member of the PRCA and continue to actively compete in professional and open rodeo events.

With my rodeo experience and passion for the sport, I know what it takes to succeed. I look forward to visiting with you about your future with our OSU Rodeo team!
