Steve Jansen Caleb Mitchell, team roping
Name: Caleb Mitchell Age: 29 Hometown: Tomball, Texas Event: Team Roping
I graduated from Tomball High School and I've been rodeoing forever. I now live in Mason.
This is my fourth time at Rodeo Houston. I've done pretty good each year. I've never won it or nothing, but I've won a couple of thousand each year.
The cool thing about rodeo is that you go all over the world. I go from here to Washington state to everywhere else.
Houston is my favorite place to rodeo because I grew up here. I have a few friends and family who come out to see me. When I come back, people call me or text me the night after I rope. The first time I roped here was like a dream because I always dreamed about that as a kid.

When I'm not rodeoing, I'm mainly practicing. That's about it. There's nothing else I really do.
I keep rodeoing because I love it. That's the reason why you do it. A lot of times when you don't got no money and you're driving all night and everything else, you're doing it because you love it.
