His college rodeo career didn’t end as he’d hoped, but Kolby Stock of Vilonia is looking ahead to the professional ranks.

Stock, 21, competing for Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College in saddle bronc, qualified for the College National Finals Rodeo for the second time this spring. But once in Casper, Wyo., in mid-June, a knee injury in the second round brought his college rodeo days to a halt. After knee surgery in June, Stocks is looking to the winter. By January, he said he hoped to be back in the saddle in the Great Lakes pro circuit, which covers Missouri, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan.

He is a son of Kirk and Bulah Stock.
