Cowboy Diaries 2013: Wade Sumpter, a Footballer and a Hazer
Wade Sumpter, Hazer
Name: Wade Sumpter Age: 31 Hometown: Fowler, Colorado. Event: Hazing
Wait, what's hazing? It's iding along with the bulldogger, making sure the steer stays straight and true. This stuff's nerve-wracking -- you'd hate to screw up. You'd rather screw up on your own run than on somebody else's run.
I've been to RodeoHouston eight times now.
In college I played outside linebacker for the University of Northern Colorado.
My favorite part about Rodeo Houston is this building -- it's about five times bigger than anything we compete in.
When I'm not rodeoing, my wife and I have some cows at home, got a small alfalfa farm.
If I wasn't rodeoing, I'd like to stay home and take care of everything.
