Round 2 of the International Finals Youth Rodeo

by Siri Stevens

Zack Jongbloed left Louisiana High School Rodeo with his second All Around title. The 17-year-old cowboy from Iowa is competing in tie down and steer wrestling and is currently leading the average in the steer wrestling. Zack is the quarter back for his team back home and that helps keep him strong and fast. “I quit playing football – I had to pick and choose and I chose rodeo – it’s what my family did and where my heart is.” He has two uncles (Joey Roberts and Jeff Corbello) who made the WNFR in steer wrestling. “They are at the practice pen as much as I am keeping me sharp. They’ve been a tremendous help to me.” He also has help in the tie down with Jade Conner, a good family friend. Zack plans to attend college McNeese, staying close to home, and then pro rodeo for a couple years and see where it goes from there.
