GARRETT TALAMANTES - THSRA PRESIDENT
Hi, my name is Garrett Talamantes and I am your 2022-23 THSRA President. I am 16 years old and live in Carrizo Springs, Texas where I attend Carrizo Springs High School. I am a proud member of Region VIII where I compete in both Tie Down and Team Roping.
I am a former President of the Texas Junior High Rodeo Association (TJHRA) and three-time President of TJHRA Region 8. I was the President of my High School Freshman Class, and a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Aside from rodeo, I am also an aspiring singer, songwriter and host of the G1 Rodeo Show YouTube Channel. The goal of my show has always been to focus on the accomplishments of my fellow youth rodeo contestants and bring positive exposure to the sport of youth rodeo by celebrating my peers, both in and out of the arena.
In addition to my acoustic musical gigs, I can often be found performing the National Anthem at Regional High School Rodeos and have had the honor of singing at the Texas High School and Jr. High State Finals, PRCA Rodeos, Roy Cooper, Cody Ohl and Joe Beaver Jr. Calf Roping Championships and numerous other rodeos and civic functions in Southwest Texas. I have also been a Top 30 Finalist in the NFR National Anthem Contest and an All Region Mariachi Vocalist.
Academically, I am a straight A student and a proud member of the Carrizo Springs High School Gifted and Talented program, Wildcat Academic Honor Society, University of Texas Geoforce Academy, High School Mariachi Band, Football and Track Teams.
I am extremely grateful and honored for the opportunity to represent my peers as your President. There are many challenges before us in today’s society. However, as we have proven in the past, when we work together there is nothing we cannot overcome. Here’s to a great 2022-23 rodeo season!
