“My heroes have always been cowboys, and they still are, it seems.”
Willie Nelson’s words certainly echo in the ears of Bradon Callen. The BCHS junior, is a cowboy himself, and a good one at that. He recently walked away with a new saddle and a state title in team roping at the Florida High School Rodeo Championships.
Callen finished with 104 points for a 15th place in the All-Around but with teammate Colton Mathews of Lakeland, he took home the team roping championship and moves on to Youth Nationals in Shawnee, Oklahoma and High School Nationals in Rock Springs, Wyoming in July.
