GREAT FALLS — The University of Providence rodeo team announces the addition of Austin Miller to the 2019-20 roster, announced by head coach Dick Lyman on Wednesday.
“We are looking forward to having Austin join the team in the fall,” expressed assistant coach Sylvan La Cross. “He may not have a lot of rodeo background, but he has a passion for the sport and has a drive to excel.”
Miller, a bareback bronc rider and native of Great Falls, Montana, graduated from C. M. Russell High School. He competed for four years throughout high school in the Northern Rodeo Association (NRA) circuit. Miller was also a member of Future Farmers of America in which he would regularly compete in Bozeman with horse and livestock judging. Academically, he was named to the honor roll as a Rustler and will pursue a degree in business as an Argo.
“He has shifted his focus toward the weight room now, which will greatly benefit him once we start practices this fall,” said coach La Cross. “We’re excited to have another hometown athlete on the team and to help him further his education and rodeo success.”
