Favorite way to unwind outside of bull riding: I don’t really get to unwind during the season-during the week I work out at the Nike Michael Johnson Performance Center – it helps me to refocus before events. In the off season, I love to just go out to the country to get away, go hunting, and see family.

Good luck charm: having my family in the crowd - it motivates me to ride well and make them proud
