BULLFIGHTERS HONOR BFO PIONEER ROSS HILL

 

You may not have recognized your favorite bullfighter at the recent BFO in Athens, TX.  Beau Schueth, Toby Inman, Ely Sharkey, Weston Rutkowski and Aaron Mercer (Pictured L-R) ditched their own trademark styles to honor a BFO Pioneer recently lost to an ATV accident, the "Alabama Slamma" Ross Hill.  For one night, these BFO stars donned white shirts and red bandanas as a tribute to one of the most captivating personalities the sport has ever known.

 

3x BFO World Champion and the rest of the rodeo world poured out their condolences and memories of Ross.  Weston lamented, "I learned what it took to be at the top of my game [from Ross].  He was an innovator of the sport, motivator to anyone and everyone that would listen, counselor to the younger generation, and role model to everyone who was afraid to be themselves.  I love you and will miss you.  You will never be forgotten."

 

As the BFO hits our next tour stop in Reno, NV June 22-25, rest assured Ross Hill's memory will continue to be a source of inspiration for these athletes.
