Nashville, TN. – RFD-TV’s The American, Presented by Dish announces former NFL tight-end McKenna Sean aka “Bear” Pascoe and Pro Rodeo Hall of Famers Tee Woolman and Leo Camarillo as this year’s exemptions invited to compete among the top athletes from the PRCA, WPRA and PBR, in addition, to those who came through a US Open-style gauntlet of qualifiers, at AT&T Stadium on February 25, 2018.
From Superbowl rings to Rodeo Dreams, former New York Giant “Bear” Pascoe will return to the home The Dallas Cowboys to perform on the dirt instead of the turf. The last time Pascoe visited AT&T Stadium was for Super Bowl XLVI
when he and the New York Giants
defeated the New England Patriots 21-17. This time, Pascoe will be going head-to-head against the world’s top steer wrestlers
during the world’s richest one-day rodeo. The 6’5, 265-pound Fresno State grad has been deeply rooted in western sports since birth, having grown up on a working cattle ranch in central California where he and his brothers team roped and steer wrestled their days away. Last December Pascoe was invited to compete in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Permit Challenge
where he was crowned the steer wrestling champion. He was one of only two men to get both of his steers down.
RFD-TV’s Amy Wilson had the opportunity to speak with Pascoe about what it will be like to return to AT&T stadium…”To be going back as an actual cowboy and getting to steer wrestle. It’s going to be a really good experience. I have some good memories there from playing football and will hopefully make some good memories steer wrestling there too,” said Pascoe.
Three-time world champion Tee Woolman
and five-time world champion Leo Camarillo
have also been invited to team back up for RFD-TV’s The American, presented by DISH.
RFD-TV’s Amy Wilson spoke with Woolman and asked if he could have ever imaged that in 2018 he would have the chance to once again rope with Leo and this time with a chance to win a million dollars inside a building like AT&T stadium? “I’m sure we’ll figure it out, get us a game plan. When I roped with him before we always had something that we worked on. It’s going to be a crash course for sure, so it’ll be fun. It’ll be fun to see what we come up with.”
The ProRodeo Hall of Famers will be stepping back in the limelight to go head-to-head against some of the best team ropers in the world on February 25 at AT&T Stadium – 38 years after winning a world title together.
