MARTY YATES Q&A
Q: Tell us about your rookie year and any advice you have for those just starting out?
A: My rookie year was a struggle. I thought I knew way more than I did. My advice is to have an open mind and have fun!
Q: Do you have a rodeo routine you stick to when preparing to compete? Any silly superstition?
A: I usually don’t eat before I rope. I don’t wear yellow shirts. I don’t put my hat on the bed. I never carry $50.00 bills.
Q: What does your family mean to your success?
A: They mean everything to my success. If it was not for them, I would not be where I am today.
Q: Who was your mentor or role model at the start of your career?
