An Oklahoma State University student is dead after succumbing to injuries sustained after he was bucked off his mount during a rodeo competition in Texas on Thursday.

Rowdy Lee Swanson, a junior who was studying animal sciences at OSU, was bucked off his bull during the Palo Pinto County Livestock Association’s PRCA Rodeo in Mineral Wells, Texas according to a statement put out by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Rowdy Swanson at the ProRodeo in Mineral Wells, Texas,” said PRCA CEO George Taylor.

“The hearts of the entire rodeo community go out to Rowdy’s family in this tragic time. We will continue to keep Rowdy and his family in our thoughts and prayers.”

Cody Hollingsworth, the OSU rodeo coach, posted the sad news on Twitter.

“With a heavy and aching heart, I am saddened to announce that the OSU Rodeo Team has lost one of our own, Rowdy Swanson. He was a big part of our rodeo family and he will be missed immensely. Our thoughts are with the Swanson family at this time.”
