From Super Bowl Rings to Rodeo Dreams: Bear Pascoe Will Compete at THE AMERICAN
Feb. 14, 2018
Winning a Super Bowl ring is the pinnacle for any professional football player. It’s an iconic, tangible symbol that one must go above and beyond normal levels of perseverance, practice, and passion to acquire. In 2012, former NFL tight-end McKenna Sean aka “Bear” Pascoe joined the elite group of extraordinary men who sport one of these rings after he and the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI.
Fast forward to 2018 where Pascoe is still working in pro sports, but in a very different role: Rodeo.
The 6’5, 265-pound Fresno State grad has been deeply rooted in western sports since birth, having grown up on a working cattle ranch in central California where he and his brother's team roped and steer wrestled their days away.
Last December Pascoe was invited to compete in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association "Permit Challenge" where he was crowned the steer wrestling champion. He was one of only two men to get both of his steers down.
The former New York Giant has been invited to compete at AT&T Stadium as the latest exemption to RFD-TV's THE AMERICAN, presented by DISH. It's like we're throwing a bear in the mix - literally. Pascoe will be going head-to-head against the world's top steer wrestlers during the world's richest one-day rodeo.
