College sophomore Shay Carroll secured his second region All-Around and Heeling titles this spring and is now headed to the 2012 CNFR with partner Tyler Schnaufer. Shay was on the front cover of the June Rodeo News with a featured article describing his unique friendship and roping partnership with Tyler. We’re excited for these two and look forward to seeing their names high up in the year-end results this year.
“My roping is ready. What I’ve been focusing on is seeing, feeling and trusting it and not worrying about the outcome. I have faith in the fact that I’m prepared.” Shay credits the movie, “Seven days in Utopia” to helping his pre-game confidence and frame of mind. “I just need to go do my deal! The biggest thing is to stay in your game.”
We have no doubt that Shay’s roping talent and confidence in his preparation and horse will lend him to a successful second CNFR. To keep up with Shay through the CNFR and his first BFI, check out his Facebook page.
