Rodeo: Elkhart's Trey Thomas earns scholarship

Elkhart’s Trey Thomas is coming off an impressive riding at the Texas FFA State Convention Rodeo in Dallas.

Thomas won the bull riding event and was awarded a $1,000 scholarship to be used when he graduates high school.

This past June, Thomas was the youngest competitor at the Texas High School Rodeo State Finals, where he prepared himself for the rides to come.

Coming up next for Thomas are two huge events — the Texas Youth Bull Riding State Finals from July 19 to July 21 in Saginaw, and the Youth World Bull Riding Finals from August 7 to August 10 in Abilene.

Thomas said he hopes to continue his success at these events.
