Whataburger's Whatakid: Jack Griffin of Region II

Congratulations to the Whatakid of the month, Jack Griffin! This seventeen-year-old senior competes in team roping and calf roping. “The reason I like to rope is because of the adrenaline rush. Everything just happens so fast,” Jack said. Jack rides two different horses that he has for about two and half years. Mate, his calf horse, is very smart and social. He knows how to untie knots and let himself out of his pen. “Just the other day Mate undid the latch and got into the feed room. He does a lot of mischievous stuff like that,” Jack explained. His other horse, BJ, is his heading horse. Jack described BJ as very skittish but always “right on the muscle.” Jack has been a part of rodeo ever
