HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Kent From

He should have been born a cowboy in the 1880’s, but instead Kent From was born in Lincoln, NE in 1950. He was raised on a farm and ranching operation with his family south of Lodgepole. There was always a good supply of horses or cows that Kent tried to see if they would buck. After graduation Kent went to work on a construction crew and began his rodeo career of riding saddle broncs and bulls. He married his wife, Vickie, in 1970. They have 2 daughters, Tami and Dusty, 2 sons-in-law, Mark and Curtis, and 6 grandchildren. Kent has been a PRCA cardholder since 1976. He served as saddle bronc director for the Nebraska State Rodeo Association for many years. Kent was the Nebraska State Champion Bronc Rider 5 times; Nebraska State Bull Riding Champion twice; and an All Around Cowboy, too. Kent joined the NSPRA in 1990 and was the saddle bronc champion in 1990, 1991, and 1995-2001; and reserve champion in 1994. He was also the finals champion in 1990, 1991, and 1994. Kent also won the Canadian Senior Pro Saddle Bronc in 1998 and 2001. He served as an NSPRA event director in the bronc riding from 2000-2002. Kent was the rough stock riders “champion” constantly striving to make the sport of rodeo better. He always had time to help a friend down the road, give advice or help them out of the chute and then cheer them on. He is a man that stands tall in the world of rodeo as a true cowboy and saddle bronc rider and is a mentor to many young competitors. Kent is a true cowboy in every sense of the word.
