Our staff have some pretty incredible hobbies. Meet Dane Phariss, a Lab Technician in Dallas, who spends his free time willingly strapped to a bull – well, at least for 8 seconds – (or most of 8 seconds?). Yes, that is Dane in the photo.
Since his freshman year in high school, Dane has been participating in rodeos and is a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA).
He trains 4 times a week in Ponder, Texas and competes in the bull riding events every Friday and Saturday across the southwest, including a recent rodeo in New Mexico! Come support him this summer at the Mesquite Rodeo. My guess is that this training makes riding that motorcycle to work seem pretty tame in comparison!
