Keyshawn Whitehorse of Utah is representing the Navajo Nation in fine style as a top 35 contender in the Professional Bull Riders. Indian Country has a formidable contingency in the PBR with Keyshawn in addition to Chippewa Lakota, Stetson Lawrence; Cherokee, Ryan Dirteater and two time PBR Champion, Northern Cherokee, JB Mauney, riding bulls; Sicangu Lakota, Cooper Waln is fighting bulls. We had the privilege of visiting with a very modest, young gentleman, Keyshawn Whitehorse at the PBR event in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
We had the good fortune of visiting with Brennon Eldred of Oklahoma for this weeks Word With A Champ. Mr. Eldred Is one of the stickiest bull riders, not only in the Professional Bull Riders, but the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association as well. If he would have ridden his tenth bull at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 2017, he would’ve won the event and the PRCA Bull Riding title. It has not slowed him down a bit in his pursuit to perform in Las Vegas, the city of lights at the PBR World Finals his second time and his fifth Wrangler NFR in 2018.
The 25th Professional Bull Riders “Unleash the Beast Tour” sold out 3 performances in Sioux Falls, South Dakota April 6, 7 & 8, 2018. The Livestock Superintendent Cody Lambert of Texas visits with us about the event. We also caught up with the defending PBR Champion of the World, Jess Lockwood of Montana about his second victory in a row in SD.
UFC fighter Felice Herrig is our guest this week on Word With A Champ. A nice looking woman that is all of 115 lbs of knock-out potential inside an Ultimate Fighting Competition cage. Felice is a very intelligent and determined competitor that is nearing a title fight, a first in her career. Ms. Herrig graciously shared exceptional insight to her success at 4 Bears Casino Fight Night prior to her next event in Brooklynn, NY, on one of the largest stages in the game. We wish this first class lady, Felice Herrig, victory in April.
