Fun Facts about Ross: He’s played on big stages before, and it’s all been preparation for achieving his goal of qualifying for the WNFR, which he set after joining the PRCA. When that didn’t look like it was possible, he set a goal of winning the rookie-of-the-year and accomplished that in 2018. His 2019 season started with a bang when he won the San Antonio Stock Show Rodeo with Tate Kirchenschlager. He was competing at college rodeos for Hill College and qualified for the College National Finals Rodeo. A no-time in the final round kept them from winning the national title. Ross has learned to have a short memory and keep looking forward. That attitude has kept winning checks coming for him and Clint Summers who will be heading for Ross at the WNFR. Most importantly, Ross can check that goal of qualifying for the WNFR off his list and focus on new goals.
