Great piece. I loved hearing the voices and stories of these competitors. Neat glimpse into a world I know little about. Thanks for the good work.

Thank you, Morgan Tyree, for a truly captivating photo/audio package that celebrates our young rodeo competitors! I love listening to these young people tell their stories and talk about their connections to the under-sung heros of rodeo.
