"My name is Brady and I am from Eaton, CO. I started roping when I was about 10 years old and it is all I have wanted to do since. I began going to all the junior rodeos I could get to and progressed to going to high school rodeos. Along the way, I started jackpotting as much as I could as well, which has definitely helped me progress with the kind of ropers that I have competed with in the Colorado area. Currently, I am attending Chardon State College studying Agribusiness where I have one more year of going to college rodeos. Along with the college rodeos I am hoping to fill my PRCA permit by the end of this summer and see how far I go in the rodeo world along with going to as many jackpots and amateur rodeos I can get to."
Koda has been around rodeo his whole life. Bulls were always his passion. In his hay day. He was a sponsored rider. In 2016, he tore his MCL and decided that was enough. His competitive edge has driven him back into competing. He grew up in a rodeo family with a rope in his hand. Although bulls were his passion his mom made him rope at a younger age. He competed in Little Britches Rodeos until she let him focus on Bull Riding around the age of 14. He rode all the way through college and for a couple years as a Pro. Now he prefers to heel but can head as well. His competitive drive pushes him to succeed and to set high goals for himself. Outside of rodeo, Koda is a realtor for Keller Williams and a father!
I'm Bryton Scheller, I've been roping since I was big enough to ride. Roping is my life. There's not one day that goes by that I am not trying to rope or do something to practice.

My name is Lance Neuerburg, I am twenty-two years old, and I am from Gill, Colorado. I have been roping since I was eight years old. I calf rope and team rope, in the team roping I head and heel. I competed in the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association in the Central Rocky Mountain Region for four years on a rodeo scholarship. Now I am competing in the CPRA rodeos and many team roping and calf roping jackpots. I love to rope I spend four plus hours everyday from; roping the dummy, tying calves from the post, to tuning on my horses. Some people see doing all this more as a job and I see it as a passion and a rush. In my eyes the rodeo lifestyle is to have good sportsmanship, good attitude and to have fun.

My name is Tyler Boxleitner, I'm 18 years old and from Loveland, Colorado. I rope calves in the CPRA and PRCA. To me, roping is a lifestyle. Everyday I push myself to become a stronger competitor. This year, I was able to buy my Pro Permit in the middle of the summer. I won the 3rd pro rodeo I entered, and placed a few more, which led to filling my permit in 5 rodeos. My biggest accomplishment is being the youngest competitor at the CPRA Finals 2 years in a row now. My goal is to continue getting better and stronger so that I can find success at all levels of this sport. When I'm not practicing or working at my roping, I'm in the gym building my confidence and strength. I'm so blessed to be where I am at today, and I couldn't do it without the support I have."

Hello, my name is Shane Friede and I am from Johnstown, Colorado. I started roping when I was a freshman in high school and continued to rodeo through college. I am not from a rodeo family and had to teach myself a lot of what I know, and I have been fortunate to learn from some of the best in the rodeo industry. Not having a rodeo background taught me to be perseverant, dedicated, and diligent in all aspects of life not just rodeo. I am currently a member of World Series of Team Roping, National Team Roping, Wrangler Roping, and PRCA. I have had much success at all levels of team roping and plan to rodeo full time in the near future.

My grandpa gave me my first kids rope and cowboy hat when I was two years old. My life has been riding and roping ever since. My partner's name is Little Black. He is so dependable and forgiving at the same time. My current goal is to just improve every time we step into the box. My long term goal would be to get a college rodeo scholarship and then the ultimate dream is to compete at the NFR and The American. I am blessed by the Lord that I can learn and grow in the sport of team roping. Along with the support of my family and teammates, I am confident I will be successful.

My name is Abbey Zink I am 14 years old and from Sterling, Colorado. I have been riding since I was young but started to rodeo when I was 12 years old! I am currently a very active member of CJRA (Colorado Junior Rodeo Association). My favorite event is barrel racing with my horse Squeak! I look up to and am very inspired by Hailey Kinsel. Neither of my parents participated in the sport of rodeo so I think its pretty cool that I'm the first out of all the Zink family to rodeo and learn on my own with the help of others! My goal is to one day collage rodeo at Texas A&M and go to the Nation Finals Rodeo!
