DENVER - Leaders of the National High School Rodeo Association, the oldest youth rodeo organization in American, have named Havre High standout Craig Kallenberger to the Wrangler High School All-Star Rodeo Team, the first-ever corporate-sponsored youth rodeo team.
Kallenberger competes in steer wrestling and team roping for the Havre High Rodeo Club.
The Wrangler High School All-Star Rodeo Team is fashioned after Wrangler's Champion pro Rodeo Team, which includes superstars like Ty Murray, Joe Beaver, Dan Mortensen, Charmayne James and Hall of Famer Jim Shoulders.
Kallenberger earned his position on the team based on qualities, academic eligibility and athletic achievements.
"We are excited to again this year expand Wrangler's rodeo sponsorship program at the high school level," said Karl Stressman, special events manager for Wrangler Rodeo. "As always, it give us a tremendous sense of pride to associate the Wrangler brand with promising young men and women. We're confident each member of the team will be an outstanding goodwill ambassador for the sport of rodeo."
Members of the Wrangler High School All-Star Rodeo Team receive official competition apparel consisting of Wrangler Twenty X shirts with the embroidered team logo and two pairs of competition jeans.
In addition, team members will receive an official team certificate signed by rodeo greats Shoulders and Murray.
Besides rodeo, Kallenberger is also a standout running back and linebacker for the undefeated Havre High football team this season.
