As we discussed in the podcast, Will is going to pass on his knowledge of how to win at rodeos as the newly-hired coach at Northwest Mississippi Community College, at Senatobia, just a half-hour from his home in Byhalia. Will and his wife, Jenna celebrated their five-year anniversary in October. Jenna is a pharmacist, sells real estate and in her spare time competes locally in barrel racing. Now they can add college rodeos to their schedule. Will also has an interest in the medical field. He got his bachelor’s degree in exercise science and wellness from the University of Tennessee at Martin. He also has his physical therapy assistant certification. He will be using all of his experience and knowledge to build the Ranger’s college rodeo into a group of athletes that are winners in and out of the arena.
