When asked what makes the rodeo special to 16-year-old Wyatt Cole, his response comes quickly.
“It’s a way of life,” Wyatt says. “It’s the western heritage of it.”
Wyatt, along with his 17-year-old brother Quinn, will participate in the National High School Finals Rodeo, which will be held July 12-18 in Rock Springs, Wyoming.
Quinn and Wyatt, the sons of Greg and Isabella Cole of Owen County, will compete in the team roping competition.
