How important is it to you to have won an INFR Championship?  “Winning an INFR Championship is pretty important to me for a lot of reasons; one, there has been a lot of guys to qualify for the INFR and never been crowned a champion and secondly, I’ve always wanted to win it since I was a little kid.” 

What is your most memorable run at the 2009 INFR?  “The 3rd round because the team roping fell apart, I was the last guy up and knew all I had to do was catch.” 

Who has been your biggest influence in Indian Rodeo?  “Preston Williams – My roping partner, he has taught me a lot.  Mainly he has taught me how to win and we have become very good friends over the years.  We can call each other whenever either of us needs help and/or advice.”
