Marcus Theriot breaks records at 2016 College National Finals Rodeo

 

Casper, WY – On June 18th, college freshman, Marcus Theriot, added two new titles, CNFR All-Around Champion and Tie-Down Champion to an already impressive resume. The week long 2016 National College Finals, held in Casper, Wyoming, ran from June 12th through the 18th.

 

Theriot racked up a total of 510 points in the All Around race by earning points in three events: Tie-Down, Team Roping, and Steer Wrestling.  Marcus captured the Tie Down title winning the average with an aggregate time of 38.1-seconds on four head. In Team Roping Marcus and partner, Lane Mitchell, placed in the third round with a 5.7-second run earning the team a spot in Saturday’s finals. A rapid 3.9-second run in the Steer Wrestling was fast enough for Theriot to win the second round.

 

Theriot is no stranger to winning titles, including a 2014 NHSFR All Around title and 2015 Mississippi High School Rodeo Association All Around championship. In May of this year Marcus won the Tie Down, Team Roping, & Boys All-Around Championship, & Reserve Champion Steer Wrestler in the NIRA Ozark Region.

 

Theriot broke two records at the 2016 CNFR by being the only cowboy ever to win two titles in the same year and the first freshman to win the coveted All Around championship.
