Take a moment to meet him:

Canyon Bass
My name is Canyon Bass, I am 14 years old and from Wimberley, Texas. I ride bulls and rope calves competitively. I have been riding rough stock since I was 8 years old, starting on calves, progressing to Jr. Steers, Sr. Steers, PeeWee Bulls and now Jr. Bulls. I currently participate in the Texas High School Rodeo Association (THSRA), the Jr. NFR, Elite Junior Bull Riders, Texas Youth Bull Riders (TYBR), Youth Bull Riders (YBR), the Texas Youth Rodeo Association (TYRA) and other miscellaneous open rodeos across United States. My family and I travel almost every weekend to either bull ridings or rodeos, most being in Texas, but some being in neighboring States, as well. We will be traveling to Las Vegas, NV in December for the Jr. NFR, which runs simultaneous to the NFR. My picture will be on the side of the Cinch 18 Wheeler, along with all of the 2018 National/World Jr. High Champions, which will be at the NFR and multiple pro-rodeos and youth finals throughout 2019.

My short-term goals are to win the THSRA as a Rookie Freshman at the Region, State and National level. I also have set a goal to win the YBR World and Jr. NFR as a rookie Jr. Bull Rider. My long-term goals are to collect the most prestigious titles in rodeo. I would like to win the high school finals, college finals, Texas Circuit Finals, PRCA and possibly the PBR, as well. I also have a long-term goal of staying connected to rodeo even after my career ends as a commentator or rodeo producer.
