Lovelady Senior Ranked Third in the World, Set to Ride at Bull Bash
Prom, graduation invitations, 'senioritis'...those tend to be high concerns for any high school senior. However, for Boudreaux Campbell, a high school senior at Lovelady (south of Crockett), holding on for dear life for 8 seconds can be added to that list.
Over the past few decades, quite a few young men and women have competed in the Texas High School Rodeo Association, and a number of those have tried their hand in the pro circuit. Boudreaux Campbell is a two time Texas High School Bull Riding Champion and high school senior at Lovelady High School, and, oh by the way, he is ranked No. 3 in the CBR’s 2017 World Standings of the professional Road to Cheyenne bull riding tour. He joined the tour in August after qualifying thru the CBR’s Horizon Series and won his first event in Hobbs on January 28
Campbell will be one of the top 24 riders in the country to try their hand at the 28th annual Lufkin CBR Bull Bash on Saturday, February 25th. He will certainly enjoy the hometown crowd advantage as he tries to notch another pro victory.
Campbell recently visited the Merrell in the Morning Show on KICKS 105. The humble youngster from Houston County is set to become a household name in bull riding within the next year or two. Bull riding legend Tuff Hedeman and 4-time CBR Bullfighter of the Year Brandon Loden are quick to sing his praises.
The Big Tex Agriplex Lufkin CBR Bull Bash will be at the George H Henderson Jr. Expo Center on Saturday, February 25th. Gates will open at 6:30 and the riding starts at 8. Josh Ward will be this year's concert entertainer after the riding is done and the champion is crowned.
