Our sports person of the week is Sam Houston's Ty Fogleman. He was the Louisiana High School Reserve Cutting Champion for this past school year.
His title then allowed him to compete at the National High School Finals Rodeo, July 12-18 in Rock Springs, Wyoming. It was Fogleman's third appearance at the national finals and he was determined to best his fifth place finish in 2014.
In the 1st round of competition, Fogleman placed second with a score of 148 and then won the second round with a score of 149.
His short go round, however, wasn't as impressive as his first two, thus he placed 9th. Even with the disappointing round, Fogleman became the 2015 Reserve National Champion Boys Cutter.
Ty Fogleman started his senior year with the Broncos this week and hopes to make one final run at the championship next season.
