During the late 80’s through the late 90’s, Bud was a familiar figure at every NSPRA rodeo he could possibly attend.
During this period, he won numerous championships and left a legacy as a director. His sense of humor, jokes and stories distinguished him as a rough cut cowboy poet.
Everyone knew Bud. Although injuries have kept him out of the arena the past few years, Bud has maintained his involvement with NSPRA. He hauls wife, Teresa, wherever she wants to go and remains active in steer wrestling—hazing, coaching, and encouraging his bulldogger friends.
If a job needs doing, he pitches in. His cowboy poet abilities have only been enhanced by age and he continues to entertain everyone he talks to with his sense of humor and quick wit.
True to his cowboy heritage, Bud still says, “All I want to do is be a cowboy.”
