The bull fighter in rodeo is an athlete who protects the bull rider after he dismounts or is bucked off by distracting the bull and directing its attention to the exit gate, sometimes stepping between the bull and the bull rider. The bull fighter has all the athleticism of a line backer and the grace of a dancer. This story will be expanded by selecting one team of bull fighters as they work to achieve recognition and an opportunity to perform at the National Finals Rodeo.
