Rodeo Class of 2021: Garris Robertson


September 9, 2020

Howdy, my name is Garris Robertson, and I am a senior at Twin Bridges High School. I compete in calf roping and team roping. I am planning on attending the University of Montana, Western, in Dillon, next fall. I've been a member of MHSRA since sixth grade. I competed three years in junior high, and qualified for Nationals each of those years. This is my fourth year in high school competition and qualified last year for Nationals.

Through rodeo, I've made so many friends who have helped me be a better competitor and a better person. I have friends from all over the state and had the opportunity to meet many others at National rodeos as well.

I would like to thank my mom and dad for the countless hours of work to get ready for rodeos and for hauling me to them, for my brother Cyris for being a really mean coach, and my brother Sylvis for being a role model that I have looked up to in order to do better in school. My grandparents, Jerry and Marilyn Robertson, for attending my rodeos. And Sharon and Edgar Icenoggle for attending rodeos and supplying great horses for me to learn and compete on. Thanks to Dean and Wendy Briggs, Dean and Roselle Hanson, Jay and Bernette Wagner family, Al and Sharmen Scafani and family, Gene and Jann Potter, Rich and Lonna Johnson family, Dunagan family, and Kody LaHaye, for help with my roping and basic support through the years. Without these people, I wouldn't be where I am today.
