A collegiate bull rider has passed away. Rowdy Lee Swanson succumbed to his injuries after being severely injured at a competition last Thursday.
An official cause of death has not been announced yet.
He was competing in a Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association event in Mineral Wells, Texas. The 20-year-old was competing in a Palo Pinto County Livestock Association event inside the PRCA event.
“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Rowdy Swanson at the ProRodeo in Mineral Wells, Texas,” PRCA CEO George Taylor said in a press release. “The hearts of the entire rodeo community go out to Rowdy’s family in this tragic time. We will continue to keep Rowdy and his family in our thoughts and prayers.”
The press release says that Swanson was bucked off Rafter G Rodeo’s Gritty. No other information was provided on how he was injured.
Before his death, Swanson was a junior at Oklahoma State University. In addition, he was a member of their rodeo team.
“With a heavy and aching heart, I am saddened to announce that the OSU Rodeo Team has lost one of our own, Rowdy Swanson,” coach Cody Hollingsworth said. “He was a big part of our rodeo family and he will be missed immensely. Our thoughts are with the Swanson family at this time.”
