Tanner In The Morning

Weekdays 5:00AM - 10:00AM

This is so sad. Friends say he died doing what he loved.

A student at  Oklahoma State University passed away  Thursday after he was thrown from a bull during a rodeo.

20-year-old bull rider Rowdy Lee Swanson was competing in the Palo Pinto County Livestock Association’s PRCA Rodeo in Texas last week when he was injured.

The rodeo Chairman Scott Fenner posted this on social media, “We are deeply saddened by the passing of Rowdy Swanson following injuries sustained at the Palo Pinto County Livestock Association’s PRCA Pro Rodeo. The entire Rodeo Committee and our rodeo family extend our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to Rowdy’s mother Venessa, his brother Roper, and his entire family.”

So sad. RIP

Our rodeo family has gained another bull riding angel. Prayers for t... he family and friends of college cowboy Rowdy Swanson of Duncan, Oklahoma, who died doing what he loved at the PRCA Rodeo in Mineral Wells, Texas, last night. My heart is broken in half for Rowdy's mom, Venessa, and little brother, Roper.
