Rodeo was always a big part of Daniel's life. Anyone who
knew Daniel or met him for the first time soon realized he
was a cowboy in every way.  

Daniel died on August 7, 2005 from injuries sustained at a
PRCA rodeo on August 6. He was 19.   

The night before he died, he lived one of his dreams.  He
had drawn D & H Cattle Company's bucking bull Crossfire
Hurricane at the Idaho Falls PRCA Rodeo.  Just to have
the chance to put his rope on this great bull had him on
cloud 9.   Though he did not ride Crossfire for eight
seconds, he sure gave him heck for about five.  He told a
television reporter that night while being interviewed on
television, “This is what I do. I'm going to keep doing it
until I can't do it anymore.”  

After being interviewed, two young boys asked him for his
autograph, a first at a pro-rodeo.  Daniel pulled off his
number from his vest, then asked them “What was your
favorite event?”  They both replied “Bull Riding.”  When
he realized that he need something to sign for the other
young boy, he crawled under the walkway to pick up a
discarded number and signed it.  Their faces were
beaming and they were so excited.

Due to the outstanding corporate support received
through sponsorships and ticket sales from those who
attend the rodeo every year, we are now going into our
14th year.  THANK YOU!  

The ability to produce this rodeo is only accomplished
because of the countless hours put in by the committee
members and the countless volunteers.  Your time and
energy are what make the difference.

It is our goal and commitment to continue doing good
things in his hometown and giving our community the
opportunity to celebrate his life and the sport he so loved.
