WC Rodeo Boosters celebrate New Season with Meet & Greet

The Weatherford College Rodeo Booster Club hosted its annual Rodeo Team Meet and Greet Sunday at the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse Clubhouse as WC welcomed 27 returning and 26 freshman student-athletes to Weatherford before classes begin Wednesday.

Head Rodeo Coach Johnny Emmons is bringing back four former College National Finals Rodeo qualifiers, with representation from 13 states plus two from Canada.

“I’m really excited about this year’s team,” Emmons said. “With the CNFR experience, and several winning at pro rodeos this summer, along with some former national and state high school champions, this could be the best team we’ve ever had!”

Former Coyotes Landon Williams and Cadee Tew Williams addressed the team on what it takes to be successful in college rodeo. Landon won a national championship at Tarleton State University and Cadee is a two-time CNFR qualifier.

Dr. Tod Allen Farmer, WC President, and Dr. Andra Cantrell, Executive Vice President for Financial and Administrative Affairs, also addressed the athletes.

The winners of two awards memorializing longtime coach Mike Brown were also recognized: Mike Brown Scholarship winners Bristan Kennedy and Tucker Menz, and Leighton Berry, who won the Mike Brown Memorial Buckle at the Ranger/Weatherford Rodeo last spring. Cheryl Brown represented the family during the presentation.

The team will begin the new season Sept. 20-22 at the Eastern New Mexico University Rodeo in Portales, New Mexico.
